Yeah, sounds worth checking for memory errors with a profiler/analyzer that can do that. I think there’s also the ‘memory’ sanitizer to detect uninitialized reads? Valgrind’s memcheck tool has also helped me a lot with such things, IIRC something like `valgrind --leak-check=full --track-origins=yes ...`
