Yes, the components are all in different virtual address spaces.
Anyway, I assume that changing the linking in such a way to get a
components name would be like taking a sledgehammer to crack a nut. I
wonder what exactly you mean with weird values (IP, stack pointer,
pagefaults, ...?) and at where you are when observing them (Core,
Kernel, debugger, ...?). I ask because, for example, the
Region-Management code in Core actually knows which Address Space is
used by which component. If your component causes a pagefault, Core not
only prints the name of the component but also name and IP of the thread
that caused it.
