Hi again and thanks for spending the time.

>>Maybe you can debug by triggering the pr_debug ()
Switched the pr_debug to a normal printf, and also added a printout of program
counter directly in the libdw frame callback (see attached patch). And from
what I can see the duplication of symbol comes from libdw

>>eu-readelf --debug-dump=frame /usr/local/bin/Application
Not fully understand how to read the callstack debug data, is this what you
want? I guess you are supposed to unroll the entire register file from last
function with this info, so I would have expected more data.
