I'm getting sporadic crashes starting ccl on various linuxes
(CentOS 5.5, Scientific Linux 5.5, and Open Suse 11.3)

Backtrace stopped: frame did not save the PC

I don't understand why gdb can't display the backtrace, I have
the optimizer turned off, and -g turned on.

Previously, I was able to get a crash after a mmap call to allocate
a stack segment, but now the program runs after that, and I wind
up with the above situation.

Does anybody know of any debugging code that I can enable?
I turned on DEBUG_MEMORY by setting it to 1 in memory.c
