[sysmon-help] memory corruption on reload

Sometimes when I run 'sysmond reload' I get the following error:

# sysmond reload
sysmond: 16:21:28 sending signal 1 to sysmond process 5454

[root at brick ~]# sysmond: 16:21:28 Done reloading new config file
*** glibc detected *** malloc(): memory corruption: 0x098a05d0 ***

I'm running 0.92.2 on CentOS 4.5, kernel
# uname -a
Linux brick.eego.net 2.6.9-55.0.2.EL #1 Tue Jun 26 14:08:18 EDT 2007
i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Glibc version is 2.3.4-2.36. sysmon was compiled with gcc version 3.4.6
20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-8)

After trying to reload sysmond seems to crash and needs to be killed
with signal 9.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, or have any ideas how to fix it?
