Hi!

I have a following problem:
When I allocate something in DLL and then I deallocate it
in application I get assertion failure:

Debug Assertion Failed!
File: dbgheap.c
Line: 1076
Expression: _pFirstBlock == pHead

I'm using VC++ 4.2 / Window95.

Simple demonstration of the problem:
===========================
DLL code:
---------------
__declspec( dllexport ) int* AllocInt()
{
      return new int;
}

Application code:
-------------------------
__declspec( dllimport) int* AllocInt();

void main()
{
    int* i;
    i = AllocInt();
    delete i;  // causes an assertion failure
}

Thanks for help

Here is my guess.  
If you look at line 85 in dbgheap.c you can see that _pFirstBlock is
a static variable in dbgheap.c.  Now if your DLL is compiled in
a release version in witch case it doesn't use dbgheap.c the _pFirstBlock
variable in dbgheap.c will not be right when you use debug delete.

In short.  You are using Release new while using Debug delete.
