[Bf-committers] blender-2, 77a crash under linux in vmware windows 10 host.

This issue sounds rather odd indeed - though trying to run Blender on a 
linux VM from win10 host is looking for issues, imho… :P

A couple of things to try:
* Run blender on that VM with the software OpenGL drivers (using the 
`blender-softwaregl` distributed with official blender), this should 
definitively rule out potential graphic driver issues.
* Run official Blender releases (archives from 
download.blender.org/releases), those are nearly totally statically 
linked, so should help spotting possible libs issues.
* Create a debug build with asan enabled 
found that tool tremendously easier to use than valgrind, and it already 
catches a lot of memory errors.

Hope this help,
