Bug#516567: xserver-xorg-video-radeon: X-Server repeatedly crashes

Hello Brice,

I'm happy to announce a complete backtrace. No idea what was wrong the last time. But this trace looks really "nice", at least if a segmentation fault can look nice.

Oh, you mean "gdb", not "gdm" :)

No. gdb catches the process before it dies because of this SIGABRT. When
you detach gdb, the process behave as if gdb wasn't there, i.e. it dies
from SIGABRT for real.

I doesn't justify the missing backtrace.

I am puzzled...
