How can I debug bad alloc exception

I'm a newbie at Intel TBB. I'm using concurrent_vector and concurrent_hash_map. I haven't allocate anything using new, so may be there is no memory leak. But I'm getting bad allocation exception. I'm using 32 bit Linux Mint 14 on VMWare workstation which has 3GB of memory. How can I debug is my program leaking memory or it's just the program can't allocate enough memory?

Does the program load? (IOW can you set a breakpoint at first execuitable statement in main and run to break?)

Yes, the program loads. It even run for a while. Then it throws bad_alloc exception

You may have memory leak, or memory fragmentation, or simply require more memory that what is available. If you have the scalable allocator enabled, try disabling it.

You can also insert heap hook functions to track allocations and frees:
