           Summary: Need heap overrun detection at beginning of buffers,
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.37
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: ntdll
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: dank at kegel.com

On Linux, valgrind gives nice warnings when you access before
the first byte.  It'd be nice if valgrinding Windows apps under Wine
gave the same warnings.  For instance, the following program should
give three warnings under valgrind+wine just as it does under valgrind:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int badness_before_n_after ( char* p )
 return p[-1] + p[10];

int main ( void )
 char* p = malloc(10);
 int who_knows = badness_before_n_after(p);
 // expect 2 x invalid address yelpage
 who_knows += p[5];
 if (who_knows == 42)
   printf("It's 42 (!)\n");
   printf("It's not 42 (dull but unsurprising)\n");
 return 0;
