#9247 closed bug (fixed)

Debugger skips a frame in some cases

Platform: All


If a program crashes due to dereferencing a NULL function pointer, Debugger doesn't quite handle unwinding the top frame correctly. As a consequence it essentially winds up skipping the frame which actually caused the crash in question. Attached a simple patch to handle this for x86. Please review and let me know if it's incorrect, though it appears to work for my tests.

Looks OK, though a null pointer is just a special case. The effect is the same for any non-executable address. ATM readability can be checked at least.
