2013.2 Vivado IP Flows - On SuSE 11 OS, I get "Abnormal program termination (6) Attempt to free invalid pointer: 0x89e160" when I open an IP customization GUI


I am using SuSE Linux-11 and running Vivado Design Suite 2013.1 or 2013.2. If I open an IP customization GUI from the IP Catalog, I see an abnormal program termination after 10 to 30 seconds, as follows.

rc/tcmalloc.cc:390] Attempt to free invalid pointer: 0x89e160
Abnormal program termination (6)

This issue has been found with Vivado tools that are running on some SuSE 11 systems and opening a customization GUI for a licensed IP.

The failure is in the license check that is spawned in a separate thread.

This issue has been resolved in Vivado Design Suite 2013.3.

For earlier versions of the Vivado tool, the work-around is to use another operating system (e.g., RHEL 6) to customize the licensed IP. The other license checks run during the design flow (e.g., IP generation, synthesis, bitstream generation) do not exhibit the same problem.
