Whenever i try to perform any filesystem library operation in Linux i
get following message at runtime.

I written following code

int SystemCall::Remove(std::string strAbsFilename)
        fs::path del_path ( fs::initial_path() );
        del_path = fs::system_complete( fs::path( strAbsFilename,
fs::native ) );
        if(fs::exists( del_path ))
            int i = fs::remove(del_path);
            cout << i << "\n";
            cout << strAbsFilename.c_str() << " not found.";
            return 0;
        cout << "\nSuccessfully deleted.";
        return 1;

This code deleted the file passed to it as an argument. But give runtime
"free(): invalid pointer 0x91d5638! ".

1) Is it a memory leak ?
2) Can this lead to a bigger problem. Because my code works perfectly
fine except this message.?

thanks and regards
