In the past, some people were using collectd on MacOSX. However, I
haven't heard of anyone doing so lately.

A quick search on Google suggests that collectd tries to to free some
memory that it did not allocate before. Are you familiar with using a
debugger (like gdb)? If so, please run collectd in gdb, set a breakpoint
at malloc_error_break (as suggested in that error message) and provide a
backtrace at that point.

Which version of collectd did you use? I could try to reproduce that
behavior myself.
