argh, I apologize for leaving one important fact aside:
I'm running with malloc checking on:
# set | grep MALLOC

if I unset MALLOC_PERTURB_, the Xserver will run pretty happily without crashing on cleanup.
still I'm pretty sure it's a valid problem as I'm producing structures that will cause a double-free
on cleanup.
