Problem Description
When I try to start edgemenu, it fail immediately with "Sorry, malloc returned null".
Cause
When logged in as root, check the output from the command:

stty -a

Look for the rows, columns values. They are probably set to some odd value.

Solution
Run the stty command to set the rows & columns to a more traditional value, such as 24 rows & 80 columns.

stty cols 80; stty rows 24
