Hi All,

I'm having a problem with xpm2ps failing in both version 4.5 and the current git 
version (pulled just a few minutes ago).  The program exits with:

xpm2ps(24704) malloc: *** error for object 0x803201: pointer being reallocated 
was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

Program xpm2ps, VERSION 4.5.1-2010-09-14 13:11:27 +0200-b953b64
Source code file: smalloc.c, line: 214

Fatal error:
Not enough memory. Failed to realloc 10012 bytes for *line, *line=0x803201
(called from file matio.c, line 197)

"Pump Up the Volume Along With the Tempo" (Jazzy Jeff)
: Cannot allocate memory

Version 4.0.7 produces the correct output from the same input files (.xpm and 
.m2p).  Any ideas?
