Requesting the h_vmem complex also sets the system's virtual memory (ulimit -v) and stack size (ulimit -s) limits. These could possibly be the cause of the strange behavior you are seeing as the limits may cause function calls such as malloc() to fail. You can test your software outside of SGE by manually setting the ulimit values and see if you can track down the cause of the problem.
