Hi Woodley,

Wow, problem solved, thank you so much! I must confess that I am extremely curious to understand where in the Valgrind log you found the clue to solving the problem! I looked to this file many times, and I wasn’t able to identify anything.

What is peculiar to me is that I had never defined this variable before. For running the old fftb version in my MacOS system, I sure haven’t set this variable. Maybe something specific from the docker container blocked you from getting this variable from another place? Or perhaps this variable is something new on this version?

I am back on track! 

All the best,

Alexandre Rademaker

This comes from the $LOGNAME environment variable.  Can you please try setting LOGNAME to something like your username and see if that makes a difference?  For my part, I will make the code a bit more defensive with respect to this condition.
