Binutils 2.17 objdump Broken

Binutils 2.17 objdump (070218 gcc package from BeBits) crashes when disassembling (gcc 2.95.3 generated) objects with debug info (objdump -D --demangle ...). Can be reproduced under both Haiku and BeOS.

I tracked down one problem to a dereferenced NULL pointer in opcodes/i386-dis.c:print_insn() (first putop() call). Apparently the bug has already been fixed in CVS version 1.132 (2007/08/02 00:40:02) of the file.

I get a different stack trace for another test file ( compiled with "-g") though, so it seems not to be the only problem.

Update to newer binutils recommended.

I gave the binutils 2.18 a try, but merging the eh-frame stuff scared the shit out of me. Maybe it's possible to update only opcodes...

We're on 2.24 ATM. This has long since been fixed.

We are not on 2.24 for gcc2...

Well, it doesn't seem to be that annoying since one can always use a more recent version of objdump now, in case they hit a similar problem.
