The output of objdump -Sl would work nicely for that.  It becomes easy
to find the point of failure with it as well as walk the addresses from
calling functions.  I think it's a must but can only be created by the
source of the snapshot before it's stripped.  I also think that it
should also be distributed with the release either separately or
included in the source tarball.
