Could fpc devel team provide application with source code which could
translate addresses from bare bone stacktrace generated from stripped
executable into full stacktrace with unit/line info using bare bone
stacktrace file and executable with debug info included ?
Would be perfect situation to tidy join bare bone stacktrace and debug
info to avoid combining stacktrace with incorrect debug executable.Maybe
some magic number in stacktrace and debug info ?
