Something is wrong/missing from this stacktrace. The gdb that you are using
does not seem to understand the dwarf2 extension (at least that's what I
guess after googling "Unhandled dwarf expression opcode 0xf3"), and can
only find two of the frames. Try to install a later version of gdb and then
do a bt full.
