Well, after adding a bunch of debugging output, I have found the

With both leave_pinned and use_mem_hook enabled on a linpack run we
get the assertion error on the memory callback in linpack. That is to
say, there is a free occurring in the middle of a registration.

At the point of assert we have NOT resized any registrations.
The existing registrations in the tree are:

Existing registrations:
Base Bound Length
241615360 244841607 3226248
244841608 246428807 1587200
246428808 248016007 1587200
248019648 251245895 3226248
Tyring to free
Base Bound
246428808 248016007

When we get the assert, we are trying to free: 247917216, which is in
the middle of the registration. Note we have NOT resized any
registrations so I am confident there is not an issue with either the
tree or the resize at least as far as linpack is concerned.
Here is the callstack:

Note that the free occurs in the ATLAS libraries, I will look into re-
building linpack with another BLAS library to see what happens. Any
other suggestions?
