I am afraid you are not providing enough information for anyone
to help you here. 6.3 is pretty old at this point, so you should
try 6.5. Also, with core files, I have noticed that people sometimes
analyze them on a machine that's different from the one where the
core file was generated. Is this the case for you? If it is, chances
are the system libraries are slightly different, and that will cause
trouble during the backtrace computation.
Otherwise, you will probably need to specify at least the platform
on which you are running, but even then, I doubt that this will be
sufficient to help you. You probably need to provide a way for us
to reproduce your problem.
