I'm checking this in on the call-frame-cfa branch.
This comes from this bug report:
The bug here is that the frame was unwound using the inline unwinder.
The fix is to unwind to the first non-inline frame.
We may still run into problems with the epilogue unwinders here. I
expect these problems to be pretty rare, though. We could fix them by
either disabling the epilogue unwinders when not doing reverse debugging
(at least, I thought they were only needed in that scenario) or by
lowering their priority in the future, because IIUC GCC is now
generating proper epilogue metadata.
