Was ot reason for previously reported stack smashing bugreport by you?

Sure! I ran cppcheck on main cinelerra and guicast folders in last year,
and will do again.

As far as I understand cinelerra keep open edited media plus index files
(one or two per media? Total max is configurable in gui with default like
400?) plus plugin config files (xml files in .bcast5 dir) plus may be
shared libs too ....

You can check /proc/$cin_pid/fd/ subdirectory for all open files ...
