To Hans:

At GC_has_other_debug_info I compare p and the pointer GC_base(p) return, they 
are same.

And I add PRINT_CALL_CHAIN in GC_debug_malloc after ADD_CALL_CHAIN, the call 
chain can print out.

To Ivan:
sz is 40.

BTW, before I get memory leak info, i got two smash info before.
GC_check_heap_block: found smashed heap objects:
01F21C60 in or near object at 01F21C68(<smashed>, appr. sz = 5)
01F21C98 in or near object at 01F21CA0(<smashed>, appr. sz = 5)

When I use old version of GC, smashs were never happen.
Are the smashs make the call chain problem?

Thanks all your help!!
