Eggdev: Crash in malloc() internals ? (server.c:865)

    784 static void queue_server(int which, char *buf, int len)
    785 {
    790   /* Don't even BOTHER if there's no server online. */
    791   if (serv < 0)
    792     return;
    842   if (h->tot < maxqmsg) {
    863     if (h->head) {
    864       if (!qnext)
    865         h->last->next = q; 

There is no previous verification if h->last points to anywhere valid. I
couldn't find any reference to 'struct msgq' definition on the whole source!
So I couldn't understand if ->last is supposed to be *always* valid when
->head is on the place. That q that is created there never gets its "last"
field set untill the function returns. And h gets a reference to q with the
unset "last" field. Its quite hard for me to analyse this code since I
couldn't figure out (completely) its structure.

I believe my source is the one you get from a 'wget' plus
megahal and stats.mod, but none would mess with server.c on mod/server.mod/

 Actually, I think that output might prove useful. However, I bet my copy of
server.c is different than yours.. what's line 865?
