Hi all
How can one get a backtrace of PD if for example, you get a segfault? I was 
thinking of gdb, but not sure exactly what to do, as I don't know whether 
PD runs in several threads, etc.

The problem is using PD with Jack, and using the -audiodev command and 
entering more than one audio device, eg 1,2. With 1 only, PD stays running, 
but with more than 1, it segfaults shortly after startup.

Thanks in advance.
