Is DrKonqi working?

Using recent GIT sources, does DrKonqi work correctly to create backtraces?

When I run crashtest in 3.5.10, DrKonqi creates a backtrace. In TDE all I get is the following message:

"This backtrace appears to be of no use.
This is probably because your packages are built in a way which prevents creation of proper backtraces, or the stack frame was seriously corrupted in the crash."

This worked some time in the past (I am the one who patched tdebase so crashtest would build).

My build scripts all use --enable-debug=full for automake and -ggdb for cmake. The build logs show that the packages are compiling with those flags and the increased package sizes are further evidence.

Yet I can't create a backtrace through DrKonqi. The crashtest binary should be sufficient to test DrKonqi.

Would somebody running a recent GIT please confirm whether they can create a backtrace with DrKonqi?
