 Well, it looks as if gdb thinks it's lost its lunch, but you are on x86
where gdb should work well.  I take it you haven't got anything else
informative in the trace.  Any funky CFLAGS in the toolchain or XMMS ?
Any other weirdness in the use of the system ?  Did you strip the
symbols from the libraries (which makes debugging from backtraces a lot
harder) ?

 I think you said you'd only recently compiled XMMS - perhaps try
compiling it again with CFLAGS unset (to use the package's -O2 -g), and
installing to e.g. /opt/XMMS then try that version as /opt/XMMS (I'm
thinking maybe something strange happened in the compile).
