define -DSAFEMALLOC. Other projects do not. This leads to a mismatches when using my_malloc/my_free (memory allocated with safemalloc could not be freed without by free())

How to repeat:

Noted in 5.5.1, 6.0.14 changelogs.

For debug builds on Windows, SAFEMALLOC was defined inconsistently,
leading to mismatches when using my_malloc() and my_free(). 

Setting report to NDI pending push to Celosia.
