Mac silently crashing, redux

Mac silently crashing, redux
I've been seeing a lot of silent crashes on Mac recently. Sometimes there are crash logs in ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports, sometimes not. It never creates an error dialog, though, nor have I seen a Crash Reporter window for any but one crash. Will probably reboot later tonight to see if that helps, but if it doesn't what information can I provide to help debug this?

In the hope that they'll be useful, I'm attaching the last 18 hours or so of diagnostic logs I could find. (Edit: Replaced attachment; WhatPulse crashed again while I was typing this.)

I've some motivation, as I've definitely lost many thousands of keys and lots of network traffic stats to this problem over the last few days.

OS X 10.10.5, MacBookPro8,1 (Early 2011, 13") Core i5 / 8GB RAM, WhatPulse 2.6.3

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
Fresh reboot, still crashing. The launchd job I'm using to keep WhatPulse running does not prevent the app from briefly stealing focus when it's restarted, which oddly often also results in "ghost" clicks/keys being output to whatever application happened to be in the foreground—it's always a snippet of the last maybe 10-15 or so input actions. Gotten a few questions wrong on my Japanese SRS because of poorly timed crashes.

Another log ZIP for you, this one containing all 59 reports in the above-mentioned directory. There may be some duplicates, but I will move the log files now so only new ones are submitted in the future.

I hope there's at least a single cause for all this…

Sad RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
Over a week and multiple reboots later, still crashing frequently. More logs attached.

Could any of these Homebrew packages be causing conflicts?

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
No ideas? No troubleshooting steps?

This is seriously affecting my ability to type, and has become frequent enough that the bug causes nonsense messages to be sent in IM/chat clients.

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
Hi,

It seems like it's trying to open a icon file and gets forcibly shut down because of it..try running it from a Terminal with the trace option enabled to see if it logs a file name:

/Applications/WhatPulse.app/Contents/MacOS/whatpulse --verbose

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
All I got after the crash was this:

Code:
whatpulse(59622,0x7fff73cf9300) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fb109a62608: incorrect checksum for freed object - object was probably modified after being freed.
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

Looks like the same error from the crash reports. :/

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
Last few lines were about 20 minutes before the crash:

Code:

That's it up until the errors above.

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
It appears you did not supply the '--verbose' parameter, otherwise it would give you a lot more.

RE: Mac silently crashing, redux
I copied the command exactly as you posted a few comments above. That's all it gave me.

Edit: You meant the app.log, didn't you? One sec.

Here's the last minute or so of the last run. It takes 15-20 minutes to crash sometimes.
