describes how to get a stacktrace for a crasher. If you can reproduce the crasher of an existing bug and it is missing a stacktrace, it is of great help to add the stacktrace to the bug.

This link no longer leads to stacktrace instructions:

http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport#How_to_get_backtrace_.28on_Linux.29

Where can the instructions be found?
