[Rcpp-devel] [RcppParallel] Segfault but only on TravisCI

I've found out that the problem remains on OSX builds, and apparently it is
caused by clang itself. I used R-hub's fedora-clang-devel to test:
The error that stands out to me is:
*** Error in `/opt/R-devel/lib64/R/bin/exec/R': corrupted
double-linked list: 0x00000000099a3870 ***
I am essentially doing a parallel distance matrix calculation as shown in
the Rcpp gallery, but I have several distance functions. All the classes
that provide distance calculations have a member wrapping std::vector of
either RcppParallel's RVector<double>, RMatrix<double>, or Armadillo's
cx_vec. Here's the template I'm using to wrap those members:
Could the corruption be caused by this?
