Warning: I will close the bug issue without the minimal init.vim and the reproduce ways.

Problems summary

When I try to open neovim with the vimrc file specified in the readme at step 2, I get the error:
$ nvim ~/.config/nvim/init.vim
nvim(4557,0x7fff9d114380) malloc: *** error for object 0x7fdb3dd00710: pointer being freed was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
Abort trap: 6

This error prevents me from doing step 3.

I'm following the installation instructions specified in the Readme with the exception that I have put the config file in ~/.config/nvim/init.vim.

Happy to provide more information if needed. If so, let me know!

Expected

I expect nvim to be able to open a file with the the specified vimrc

It is not dein.vim error.
It seems neovim bug.
It should be reported in neovim issues.

But your neovim is old.
Please test the latest version of neovim.

Ok. Thanks. Tough to tell when it only seems to break with Dein, but I haven't fully tested neovim yet either.

Also, what makes you say that it is an old version of neovim? Their website (https://neovim.io) says that 0.2.2 is the latest version. It's also the latest version on Homebrew. I'm curious what I am missing. Are your referring to it not being the latest unstable version?

@ZackC I think the "the latest version of neovim" from Shougo is the latest unstable version of neovim, but not the latest stable version^^
