free() error with MySQL++ 3.2.5 and MySQL 8.018
(1) By nollarm on 2019-12-03 07:49:55
we built our application with MySQL++ 3.2.5 and MySQL 8.0.18 under RHEL 7.6. When running it, we get the following error more or less immediately:

The same with MySQL++ 3.2.4 and MySQL 5.7.27 works perfectly.
Do you have an idea what might be the problem? Might MySQL++ 3.2.5 not be compatible with MySQL 8.0.18 ?
As to your question of compatibility, I have no reason to believe current MySQL++ is incompatible with current MySQL. I'd need more than is in your post to change that belief. Indeed, it goes the other direction: the latest version of MySQL++ has specific changes to improve MySQL 8.0.x compatibility. Perhaps more changes are needed, but usually when that's the case, MySQL++ doesn't build at all.
free() is a C library function, which means it's well below the level of MySQL++, which generally avoids all C library mechanisms where there is a C++ equivalent. The string "
free(" doesn't even appear in the MySQL++ library code.
Your own stack trace shows this call happening several levels down in
libcrypto, which is of course not MySQL++ at all.
The only odd thing I see there is that we don't see
libmysqlclient in the call stack. I don't know how MySQL++ calls straight into
libmysqlclient. I'd guess there's a macro or inline function in the MySQL C API headers, but that's just a wild guess because you haven't provided any MySQL++ source code file names or line numbers.
Either run the program under a debugger with a debug build of the libraries so that you can get a more useful backtrace or use addr2line to decode those addresses so we can at least see where you're stepping out of MySQL++ into
