Function Free received Invalid Pointer 0x00006565

Hello, we have a server running:

- Novell Netware 6.5 SP8 (The last released server pack)
- Groupwise 8.0.3 HP1, with all agents updated to 8.0.3

This server recently, without any software changes, network changes, or physical hardware changes, is now displaying the error message:
Function Free received Invalid Pointer 0x00006565

As far as we can tell, it's group wise related, as it only happens when we load GWIA. Within a 5 to 20 minute windows, after GWIA is loaded, the server will first display:
Function Free received Invalid Pointer 0x00006565

Then server performs several small abends...after that is abends FULLY and reboots....
We looked in the abend log...and there are no abends recorded since 2010....not sure why...

Here is a list of what we tried so far, when this started happening this morning:
1. Cleaned all temp/log files out of Apache and tomcat
2. Cleaned away any useless temp files we saw
3. Renamed all groupwise processing folders such as PRC.000 etc etc, PRC.000_OLD etc (So that they are recreated, incase a message is stuck
4. Let the MTA and POA run without the GWIA, they seem to happily run with no abends
5. Load the GWIA (Within 5 to 10 minutes, server abends)
6. Applied Groupwise patch 8.0.3 Hp1, for all agents (Groupwise) We were on 8.0.2 before this, when we started experiencing the problem
7. Mail server does load all comports including GWIA, and mail processes perfects, but server still amends after 5 - 20 minutes (Same problem as on 8.0.2) patch does not fix issue..


Of course before it abends, the same error message occurs, IE: Function Free received Invalid Pointer 0x00006565

Not sure why it is happening, out of current ideas.....

I think maybe I posted this in the wrong place, since I now know it's GWIA related, I will post it there.....

Yes, also you might consider upgrading to 2012 or 2014
