Re: help: dumper 1.10 not giving expected stack trace in gdb

The core dump occurred in a function which does not have a frame pointer.
This screws up stack dumps on x86 systems. There isn't really much that
you can do about this.
Thanks for the reply. I guess what I don't understand is, if I don't set
error_start to dumper, I get what appears to be a nice stack trace in
the t.exe.stackdump file:

The "Frame" column is a frame pointer, isn't it? I loaded t.exe into gdb
and checked out some of the addresses via x/i. The functions look
When I set error_start to dumper.exe, the very same program produces a
core file which apparently does not correspond to the stackdump
information at all.
So my question now is, why would dumper produce a "bad" core file, while
without dumper, cygwin generates a "good" stackdump file?
