The instructions to generate backtrace information on don't work anymore with the latest PHP versions.

print (char *)(executor_globals.function_state_ptr->function)->common.function_name

results in:

Address of symbol "executor_globals" is unknown.

Did you enable ZTS ?
 [2007-06-27 08:16 UTC] jan at horde dot org
No, it's a debug non-zts linux build.

Well, it looks like you did enable it, because it works perfectly fine here:

Breakpoint 1, zif_var_dump (ht=1, return_value=0x836c1ac, return_value_ptr=0x0, this_ptr=0x0, return_value_used=0) at /local/dev/php/5_2/ext/standard/var.c:177
177             argc = ZEND_NUM_ARGS();
(gdb) print (char*)(executor_globals.function_state_ptr->function)->common.function_name
$1 = 0x829c56b "var_dump"

I never, ever made a ZTS build of PHP in my whole life. And just to be sure, I verified with phpinfo().
Anything else I could check? I don't know my way through gdb, I only use it for generating backtraces. Is there a way to list the available symbols?
 [2007-06-28 05:54 UTC]
Try this:
gdb php
b zif_var_dump
r -r 'var_dump(1);'
p (char*)(executor_globals.function_state_ptr->function)->common.function_name

This works fine. But I'm loading httpd when debugging segfaults.
 [2007-06-28 08:27 UTC]
I don't see any difference assuming that ZTS is disabled.
Jan, do you use IRC? It's incovenient to talk using the bugtracker.
