------------------------


On NetBSD (and probably other platforms), we can set malloc options to make
commands dump core when there are memory errors.

This is a good way to detect memory access problems.

To make commands dump core instead of just printing a warning message,
the environment variable MALLOC_OPTIONS has to be set to "A".

This can be done in the testsuite function create_shell_script - which is used
whenever a command will be executed via
open_remote_spawn_process, start_remote_prog, start_sge_bin, ...
