I'm no expert in gdb either, but looking at the bt, it looks like it's
trying to call a null function. e->func is supposed to have the name of the
function to be called and e->info is supposed to be its argument. But when
you print *e, it displayed the function name as 0.

1. checking out to make sure that all entry to the event list includes the
name of the function.
2. double check to make sure that the name of the function itself is
spelled correctly.
3. make sure that the function is actually there.
