glibc error in linuxby srinivas_rocks (Sexton)

srinivas_rocks has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Firstly, I thank all the people here for helping/supporting me for all my previous questions, and here is the next. Hope you will give your valuable suggestions even for this.
I am implementing threads and threads::shared modules in order to connect to multiple hosts and execute some operation on the remote systems using the Net::SSH2 module.
The above described application was developed and tested successfully on Solaris 8, 9 platforms. When tested the same on linux platform Redhat ES 3 resulting in the following errors
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (!prev): 0x085873e0 ***
By searching over in google and even in perlmonks too (http://perlmonks.org/?node_id=560475 -- there was no reply for this ). We could guess that there might be some problem with the linux version or glibc or perl.
We have used another version of linux i.e Redhat ES 4, but did not fetch us anything. Same error arised. Then we have upgraded the glibc 2.3.4-2 to glibc 2.7 which due to some inconsistency or improper library linking resulted in unusable system.
We are using Active State perl and even upgarded that from 5.8.8 and even tested the same thing on Fedora Core 4 systems. But no luck.
Please let us know if we have any work around or any help to overcome that problem.
Thanks in advance.
