If you're running a relatively standard linux system such as ubuntu then
you're using the platform-standard glibc malloc which was affected by this
If you're using the 11 release or earlier i'm fairly sure the bug Nathan
mentioned is the cause.
In that case, can you try
https://github.com/clangd/clangd/releases/tag/12.0.0-rc2 (or building from
source, or downloading one of the LLVM 12 RC binary releases)?
