getprotobyname() is trying to allocate memory to return the value, but
it fails because the memory is corrupted. As this function works
perfectly when called from another program, the most probable reason is
that one of the caller is corrupting memory (writing outside of
allocated memory, calling free twice on the same area, etc.).

Anyway without any easy way to reproduce the problem and given it is 
closed source software, this bug is a wontfix.
