Reading gdb backtraces from Gtk+ applications can be a pain, as the signal emissions tend make them very long and hard to read. Today i wrote a small application that compresses signal emissions and some other common gnome stuff in gdb backtraces.
For example, take this 147 frames long backtrace i’m currently working on. Its pretty much a pain to read.
With my app it turns into this instead, which is much nicer. Here are some examples:
#7 ... segfault caught by bug-buddy #8 <signal handler called> () #9 __kernel_vsyscall ()

Any chance something like this could be integrated with bugzilla?
