Well largely, ALL I want is the backtrace -- and I'm wondering if I
could cobble something together that could get it. The problem is it
needs to look at the symbol table, and I dont know how to get at that
via C -- ie, gdb doesnt have an interface that I know of that you can
link in to grab a stack trace and exit.
Its been a while since I prowled the gdb source. I may not be able to
do anything automatic like you want -- but I sure wish that tool was
