cirdna and lindna have some fixed array sizes which need fixing for some 
systems (and, as it happens, for valgrind memory tests).

Non-urgent (cirdna and lindna are not, as faras I am aware, highly 
used), so to be fixed in a future release... but quite soon.

As a quick fix, you can reduce MAXLABELS and perhaps MAXGROUPS in 
cirdna.c and lindna.c

Hope that helps,
