           Summary: Corrupt GDB backtrace
           Product: D
           Version: 0.157
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: oskar.linde gmail.com


void main() {
        static int i = 0;
        while(i++ < 10)
                main();
        *(cast(int *)0) = 0;
}

On DMD 0.157 compiling with dmd -g -debug and running in gdb and printing a
backtrace gives:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread -1208064320 (LWP 23068)]

Many gdb's fail with the -g switch. Use -gc instead. With -gc -debug, the
backtrace works fine on my machine:

gdb 5.3
i386-redhat-linux-gnu

Hmm, -gc is not listed in DMD's help ? I see it is under the linux version on http://www.digitalmars.com/d/dcompiler.html, but not if you do "dmd" on the linux command line. Looked for it on all the latest version. -- Lars Ivar Igesund blog at http://larsivi.net DSource & #D: larsivi

Maybe this is really a GDB bug, but the error remains with -gc.

On i686-pc-linux-gnu (RedHat EL4), with all of the following gdb versions:
gdb 6.4 + d symbol demangling patches
gdb 6.4 vanilla
gdb 6.3
gdb 6.0
(I was unable to get gdb 5.3 and 5.2.1 to work on my system)

compiled with:
dmd -gc => corrupt backtrace
dmd -g => corrupt backtrace
dmd => OK backtrace

with DMD 0.156 and earlier, the back traces work fine with all above
combinations.

This seems to be GDB related.
