The immediate problem is in TRSTable.c, where it attempts to reuse a pointer
which is normally malloc'd.  If you change this "0" to a "1", it should work:

#if 0   /* Leads to no memory savings and quadratic time with EMX malloc */
        /* Do not need extra cells any more */
        me->rows[me->nrows - 2].cells = realloc(p,c * sizeof(STable_cellinfo));
        me->rows[me->nrows - 2].allocated = me->rows[me->nrows - 2].ncells;
        if (!me->used_chunks

The realloc is used to shrink storage requirements - IZ's comment indicates it
may be slow.  If it's too slow, we should drop that chunk of code altogether.
