The backtrace from my simple test program is nearly useless.  I do  
have a faulting pc of 0x219a5ee4, which according to gdb is in  
_Unwind_GetIPInfo, but the only other frame in the backtrace is  
garbled.  Unfortunately, when I rebuilt world I didn't think to backup, so that pointer might not be too helpful, since I can't  
get to the instruction block it's in, and the address isn't included  
in the core dump.  If it helps at all, the CVS checkout timestamp I  
have is from Jul 28 at 21:39 EST.
