um no it is not the 0's
the 0's are place holders for the options
where it is <id> <name> <last-login> <prefs> <prefs2> or something like that

#0  0x4009cc6a in chunk_alloc (ar_ptr=0x4012d580, nb=16) at malloc.c:2673
#1  0x4009e294 in __libc_calloc (n=1, elem_size=12) at malloc.c:3574
#2  0x806f169 in write_to_q (txt=0xbffff83c "iaznab", queue=0x82e0a68,
    aliased=0) at comm.c:1028
there is something wrong in the write_to_q function. some where it allocates
invalid memory or something try looking at comm.c:line 1028
