[Closed] Z_Malloc Crash: All Games

I'm running Vavoom 1.15. All games (Heretic, Hexen, Doom) crash after either loading savegames a few times or transitioning to a new level a few times. Z_Malloc is always at the base of the crash in the error message, which suggests to me that Vavoom may be causing a memory leak. I Have 512MB of SDRAM.

Try to use option '-minzone 1024'.

Tryed that but now the game crashes under the same conditions with a <br><br>Segmentation Violation<br><br>SV_UnlinkFromWorld<-VEntity::Destroy<-SV_DestroyAllThinkers<-SV_ShutdownServer<-SV_LoadGame<-COMMAND Load<-Host_Frame<br><br>MessageBox.<br><br>Not only that but clipping wasn't working.<br>

OK, I'll check out what's wrong with unlink. And what's the problem with clipping?

I set -minzone 1024 on the command line and while playing I could walk through walls to a limited degree.  The game would usually crash while doing this.
