The fact that you find this meaningful is telling of your thought
processes. I mean, if there were actually a problem, you could show us
a program that exhibited that problem. But you don't; you instead
point to a Google search filled with "hits"... but of what?

The first hit from that search I found
was a Stack Overflow question where this is the first sentence of the
first answer:

> As your second stack trace shows, your application is corrupting the heap.

Here's another hit of heap corruption:

If your program starts corrupting memory, a very common outcome is
that heap allocation functions break. Which is not Microsoft's fault,
no matter how much you hate them.
