This trace looks vaguely familiar, in that according to the assembly,
it's crashing after the last line in the function.  Which means it's
crashing in a C++ destructor.  Wait a minute.  You're that same guy! :)
I wish gdb would put correct debugging information in destructor code
so I could tell what's actually crashing.

You might want to try the CVS version if you're not already using it; I
fixed a couple of big-ish bugs this weekend relating to memory
