If you verify the problem is gone with glibc-2.4.90-28, sure.
Generally, when these errors show up, it is an application bug,
only in between glibc-2.4.90-22 and 2.4.90-26 inclusive
there have been bugs in malloc itself which caused the
error to show up in some cases where >= 10000 free(3) calls
have not been interleaved with any {m,c,re}alloc(3)
