If you got the patch before Feb 2nd, it alleviated the problem, but
did not cure it thoroughly. Look in your artutil.c file for lines
like the following:

            r = critrealloc( headers[hdr],
                             strlen( headers[hdr] ) + strlen( q ) + 1,

There should be two occurances of these in getheader(). Change the
1 in both sums to a 2, recompile, and you should be set. Thanks to
Michael Schwendt <schwendt@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> for finding this.
