Subject description: xwin: xmalloc: shell.c:1542: cannot allocate 5 bytes (0 bytes allocated)
 

I'm just posting this in case it helps someone one day Smile

I had a save file where the boot failed trying to start xwin with:
Code:
xwin: xmalloc: shell.c:1542: cannot allocate 5 bytes (0 bytes allocated)


I made a backup copy of the save file, booted with pfix=purge, and it worked, so I compared the two save files with diff, and found that the xwin script had been replaced with some sort of binary file (I have no idea how - maybe it was just corrupted somehow), so I replaced the offending file and now the original save file works
