        (5) - The crash occured in some standard library (like a fudged
malloc call for example), and those files haven't been compiled with
debugging included (most are not).

Since glibc2 came out though, people have been recompiling their compilers
alot, and the default set of rules usually includes the debugging info.
Distribution versions of course, don't.
