emacs doesn’t work after Leopard upgrade?

After updating from Tiger to Leopard I started getting this error whener I tried to execute emacs:

Fatal malloc_jumpstart() error

The solution was basically to reinstall it with dumpemacs

sudo mv /usr/bin/emacs-i386 /usr/bin/emacs-i386.backup
sudo /usr/libexec/dumpemacs -d
emacs --version
