That looks suspicious - the -21474... number is 0x80001000 which is
rather a lot for a malloc() request...

Try setting the textsize to something more reasonable (say 1000000)
and see what happens (yes I know that this is less than the size of
the data item you inserted, but it might help you pinpoint the error).
