You are correct.

Initially, I attempted to estimate at the amount of memory required
(based on the number of slots * max record size), however I kept
getting a core dump and eventually tracked it down to the following
routine in iscsid.c
static void iscsi_free_cmd_task(struct iscsi_task *task)

        if (task->data) {
                if ((unsigned long) task->data != task->addr)
                        free((void *) (unsigned long) task->addr);

I keept getting a glibc double free error and was not quite sure where
to go from here.

This was to be the subject of another email I had not written as yet,
but since you brought it up :)
