# finally … I can produce a segfault!

Thanks to mildew, I can now produce a rsyslog segfault. It even happens immediately at startup. Actually, it’s a bit quick, I’d expected it to occur much later. But it looks similar enough to the bug reports I received, so I can hunt that one down (yes, it seems to occur persistently)! Chances are pretty good that, if it is fixed, the real culprit is found.

Ah … and what was the magic? Mildew suggested to add mudflap to the project. I have to admit I was unaware of this capability. I guess, I’ll now make it a standard part of the debug environment – but let’s hunt the bug first…
