   Your problem appears to be in iedit_setup_existing; calling copy_object
where the destination of the copy is a null reference.

perhaps iedit_setup_existing means to create another copy of an object
'real_num' or an object looked-up in the routine  but forgot to malloc
the space so it'd be providing the routine with a valid pointer...

. o O ( actually naming a pointer 'real_num' is a "bad thing",
        since having num in the word implies that it's a standard
        numerical value -- or did gdb start printin' 0xXXX rather than
        YYY for numericals?, chuckle )
