Subject: valgrind memcheck + drd error on alpine 3.6 container

Hi, everyone!

I'm having an issue trying to use valgrind drd in the simplest musl-linked
program (just return 0).

drd refuses to even run main, and give me this error:

==24== drd, a thread error detector
==24== Copyright (C) 2006-2015, and GNU GPL'd, by Bart Van Assche.
==24== Using Valgrind-3.12.0 and LibVEX; rerun with -h for copyright info
==24== Command: ./f2k

drd: drd_malloc_wrappers.c:115 (handle_free): Assertion 'success' failed.

I would like to compare it with glibc, but I'm unable to use it in alpine
linux properly. If it helps, memcheck gives me  this error:

==163== Invalid free() / delete / delete[] / realloc()
==163==    at 0x4C939EA: free (vg_replace_malloc.c:530)

==163==         suppressed: 0 bytes in 0 blocks

And that is before even reach main() function! However, memchecks continue
after error; drd does not. ¿What could I do to keep diagnosing this error?

Thanks and regards!
