Just for reference, if you ever need to get real stack traces from people
who are using Debian packages, tell them to install slapd-dbg first.  That
package contains the detached debugging information for slapd, which gdb
will pick up automatically if it's installed.

(It's still an optimized build, so the resulting backtrace may leave
something to be desired, but it's at least not completely useless.)
