Note how here it seems to have picked up the system installed libdw.so.
Please make sure you setup LD_LIBRARY_PATH (should include backends,
libelf and libdw) correctly when running the tests.
I can only replicate your backtraces when using the system libelf/libdw,
not when running against lastest git master. e.g.
$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=backends:libelf:libdw src/nm id\:000010\,src\:000000\,op\:flip1\,pos\:5556
