Iceweasel 5.0-6 segfaults. How to debug?


With today's "Wheezy" Testing updates, Iceweasel was upgraded from
3.5.19-3 to 5.0-6.
However, this new Iceweasel instantly segfaults at startup, even
without ~/.mozilla folder or with -safe-mode passed on command line.

I would like to get a stacktrace, but even with iceweasel-dbg (and
related) package(s) installed, gdb still tells me that no debugging
symbols are found for firefox-bin:

emeric@longspeak:~$ iceweasel -g

How to fix this?

I nevertheless ran the process from gdb: all I get is:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
