Geary core Dump

After last updates, geary crash with this:

malloc(): invalid next size (unsorted)
zsh: abort (core dumped) geary

I’ve tried these:

Downgrade Geary
Restore default parameters of Geary with dconf-editor
Delete geary directories in .config and .local of my home directory and reboot.
Delete and reinstall Geary

The only thing fully functionnal had to create a new user account and launch geary in this new account. That’s not an acceptable solution.

Anyone can help me to fix this ?

OS: Manjaro (last updated)

If you could please take a look at the tips in Creating Quality Backtraces for Crash Reports – Michael Catanzaro's Blog it would definitely help the Geary developers to have a better understanding of what’s causing the crash.

Thread 1 "geary" received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap.
0x00007ffff7cd3066 in geary_logging_write_record () from /usr/lib/geary/```

After started geary with that:

valgrind --track-origins=yes geary

Geary started, and now no more problems, but I don’t understand WHY ?
