Last stabs entries before error:
n_type n_desc n_value string
2 3 00000001
NOMAP 32 00280000
LSYM 0 00000000 char:t(0,2)=r(0,2);0;127;
seems like binutils has some problems too. Gdb errors out if the test
section is missing, I thought of changing this into a warning, but
then ran into this.

I'll definitely do this, then, and add a comment.
