In read_func_scope (dwarf2read.c), if the name is not set (in this
case it is) or dwarf2_read_pc_bounds fails (which it does), the code
calls explore_abstract_origin with the address of a locally
uninitialized variable (die_children). This is then simply
dereferenced in explore_abstract_origin, and consequently passed to
xmalloc, which attempts to allocate over 4GB in my case...
I introduced this problem earlier when i was trying to resolve a
conflict that I had with a patch of Jan's.
I'll check in a fix for this. The issue is that sometimes a function Die
might now have high/low pc tags but it has an abstract origin tag
pointing to useful namespace information.
I have check in a fix for this.
