I updated for the first time in several days and can reliably crash
xmonad by running glxgears.  I haven't run glxgears in a while, but I
have run it in the past few weeks with xmonad and neither crashed.

I am seeing a slightly different error, though; instead of an error on
free() as in the original report, xmonad dies on a munmap_chunk:

*** glibc detected *** xmonad: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0x000000000045b9c0 ***
======= Backtrace: =========

Additionally, this error happens if I run glxgears, not if I try to
close it, as some of the others have reported.  When running with dwm, I
don't see the same crash.
