You don't need -O0, probably just -g.  You should probably do this
for libc as well I think.  That might help your backtrace.  What I tend to do 
for these btw is build debug shared libraries and use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to
run my test program with those libraries rather than overwriting the main 
libraries in /lib.
