You two are now discussing things over my head! :-)

Slavek, I basically copied your original patch and modified as 
necessary. You do what else is necessary to satisfy yourself and 
everybody else.

That said, the next official version of Slackware will include 
demangle.h in binutils, although I know some other distros still do 
not. I am now rebuilding binutils that came with Slackware 14.0 so 
I can have demangle.h and creae useful backtraces. The tdelibs 
configuration patch is still needed, of course, for those distros 
that don't.

Should the default be ON or OFF? I don't know. Seems we need the 
backtrace abilities only for debugging. So while we debug bug 
report 1627, having the backtrace is nice. Once Tim resolves the 
cause is the backtrace ability necessary thereafter? Probably not 
unless we again run into the same problem with a different cause. 
If the default is OFF then the developer support request in the bug 
report will be "Please rebuild tdelibs with -

Just my two cents. :-)
