Question curious question about KDE

I am running a Mandriva 2006 x86_64 PowerPack with the standard KDE 3.4. Every so often I get a KDE Crash Handler pop up, it says,
"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.

(no debugging symbols found)
Using host libthread_db library "/lib64/tls/"."

Any idea why this happens? It does not seem to hurt anything, so I have ignored it for sometime, just get annoying after awhile.

To get a backtrace you need to have the debug symbols for the program installed. KDE programs crash a lot.

I have a machine that runs Mandrake, Mandrake seems to have this problem. It may something Mandrake changed or the way they compiled KDE because I do not get crashes on my Gentoo box here.

According to my system, belongs to glibc. You may want to make sure you have the right version of glibc installed. If you do, you may want to try to re-install in case something has got corrupted or something like that.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the input. Not sure where I would get the debug symbols from.
