Subject: openarena: Crash when changing any options on System -> Graphics menu: "double free or corruption"
Package: openarena
Version: 0.7.7+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***
OpenArena crashes when "Accept" is clicked after any options are changed in the Graphics menu.

Regardless of the option changed, OpenArena crashes.  The changed option is never stored to the OpenArena config, effectively preventing changing any options in the graphics menu.  This suggests that the crash occurs before 
the options are successfully written to the config file.

The console output, the crashlog, is attached.  This is reproducible with any option, and seems to result in approximately the same crash output each time, changing only (best I can tell) the memory locations of loaded 

This bug does not appear to be reported upstream.

Thanks so much for your time and help on this issue,
Nick Daly
