When I run that program in gdb I get "Cannot find thread 2: Thread
ID=1, generic error", which indicates something related to DWARF?  I
can't get a SEGV out of it, anyhow.

Would it help if I linked this against a c program that sets up a
handler for SIGSEGV?  I don't know how I'd get the stack info out of
that, but if someone wants to send me a pointer I'd be glad to give it
a try.
