format core dumps

High uptime (~2 years) Solaris 10 update 4 data ingest system just brought up to current patch level (~300 patches). Now, "format" command core dumps after selecting any disk unless NOINUSE_CHECK=1 is set. Call trace ends with the following -- any ideas?

1831/1: getmsg(7, 0x08045E10, 0x08045E1C, 0x08045E30) = 0
1831/1: getgroups(0, 0x00000000) = 11
1831/1: sysinfo(SI_HOSTNAME, "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", 255) = 24
1831/1: getuid() = 0 [0]
1831/1: getgid() = 0 [0]
1831/1: getgroups(11, 0x08045FD0) = 11
1831/1: Incurred fault #6, FLTBOUNDS %pc = 0xC4D961E1
1831/1: siginfo: SIGSEGV SEGV_MAPERR addr=0x00756465
1831/1: Received signal #11, SIGSEGV [default]
1831/1: siginfo: SIGSEGV SEGV_MAPERR addr=0x00756465

It's clear we have a workaround, but anyone have an idea what's at the heart of the problem?
