I assume this is a valgrind false positive.

That possible. However, the assertion that causes the abort, is part of the malloc.c version (line 934) that ships with bash. I guess that the issue is caused by the fact that bash uses it's own malloc.c, which seems to be incompatible with valgrind.

It's also interesting, that even
    valgrind ./bash -c 'echo $BASH_VERSION'
causes an error in valgrind on Debian 9.9.

The following commands reproduces the issue(s) on both of my Debian 9.9 systems:

address@hidden:~/workspace$ git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/bash.git
address@hidden:~/workspace/bash$ cd bash/
address@hidden:~/workspace/bash$ ./configure
address@hidden:~/workspace/bash$ make
address@hidden:~/workspace/bash$ valgrind ./bash -c 'echo $BASH_VERSION'
