It crashes with this backtrace from gdb:

I don't seem to be able to reproduce that here, with either the PLUGINS example from the BASS package or the MIDITEST example from the BASSMIDI package. Please see if you can reproduce the problem with either of them there (run "make" in an example's folder to build it).

Would it conflict if loaded into the same process as the system's copy of libwavpack? I can provide a loaded modules list from another crash, so it lines up with the actual crash address.

BASSWV won't be affected by the system's libwavpack. Please do provide the modules list/addresses, along with the call stack, the registers, and a small assembly listing from the crash location. Also confirm that you are using the latest BASS and BASSWV versions.

Are other add-ons loading fine via BASS_PluginLoad?

Please do also try to reproduce the problem with the BASS/BASSMIDI examples, and if you can reproduce it with them, state what Linux version you're using so that I will hopefully be able to reproduce it too then.

I can't reproduce the issue with miditest. I just downloaded the archives from this site a few days ago, so I think I'm using the latest versions. I installed them system wide, and doctored the Makefiles to leave off the rpath declarations, and they still load just fine with miditest.

It must be something up with my MIDI plugin build process. I'll throw together a Makefile for it, but I don't know what else could be up. The BASSFLAC addon isn't working with it, either. I can only load SF2Pack files compressed with Ogg Vorbis, but not FLAC. (Possibly MP3 would work, but I haven't tried that.)

Here is the source tree I use to build the plugin:

I use the Makefile in the plugins/midi directory, and it expects installed BASS/BASSMIDI/plugins.

That crash location appears to be in BASSWV's destructor function (called when BASSWV is unloaded). It seems as if BASSWV's constructor function wasn't called first, leaving variables that the destructor accesses (including a pointer) uninitialized. I'm not sure what would cause that to happen. Perhaps the initial problem was in the constructor and the destructor was called before it finished. I'll send you a debug version to try to confirm whether that is the case.

Clarifying for this topic, it was partially my fault. I linked libbass to my plugin, but it didn't bring it into the public namespace that BASS plugins need to import symbols from it. Thanks for the fix, I just need to call this before importing the plugins:
