I'm not going to respond to your new thread, since it is the same
discussion as this one.

The frame cache is a per-thread local cache of frames that prevents
having to re-allocate frames as they pass through Asterisk. Clearly,
something is abusing it.

I think you'll need to provide some more information on how you're
producing this situation. Specifically:
 * Channel technologies involved, and the formats on the channels
 * Dialplan that reproduces the problem

Are you using any non-core dialplan applications or channel drivers?
