Trying to figure out why something doesn't work and for this I did gdb

down I ended up at the gst initialization code somehow causing a SEGF.
The code is the following:

gst_initialize( NULL, NULL, GST_NO_TTY );

Calling this line causes SEGF only in gdb. Anything wrong here? I used
NULL for image and kernel string since in the doc there has been no
indication at all what has to go there if anything at all.

NULL is fine.

However gst traps SEGVs for its own generational GC. You can use "handle SIGSEGV noprint" at the beginning of your gdb session, or place it in .gdbinit.

Real SEGVs become SIGABRT.
