I am just trying to get fieldtrip running on my computer, which is brand new along with my matlab 
installation.  I am trying to run the code in the first tutorial.  The computer is a fancy 64-bit dual-
xeon workstation, with RHEL 4.0, EM64T processors, and the newest Matlab 7.3 (R2006b).

Here is some info about the system that might be relevant:

uname -a
Linux 2.6.9-42.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jul 12 23:32:02 EDT 2006 x86_64 
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

rpm -q glibc

Now my problem:  as soon as I run this line in the tutorial:
dataFIC = preprocessing(cfg);

matlab crashes and I get the following error message in the shell:

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0000002af5fd5dd0 ***

Any ideas about how to fix this?  Thanks!
