Valgrind: problem opening proc/self/maps

    Hi all,

    I'm testing an application using valgrind 3.2.0 unter Linux kernel 2.4.
    When the test are finished and the app terminates valgrind gives the
    error:

    --15631:0:aspacem Valgrind: FATAL: I/O error on /proc/self/maps
    --15631:0:aspacem Exiting now.

    My first thought was that I need more access rights on that file, but
    my user can do a "cat /proc/self/maps" - so this shouldn't be the
    problem.

    Does anybody know a solution for this?

    Best regards
    Markus

    Somebody probably knows, but comp.lang.c++ is NOT the right place to
    discuss it. Please visit http://www.valgrind.org/ and find the info
    on how to ask them or others questions on using the product.
