No, it only stops printing line info for both the current and all  
future backtraces if an error occurs during the reading/decoding of  
the line information. If no line info is found for a particular  
address, nothing special happens.

However, -gl is not fully functional on platforms. E.g., it doesn't  
work for DWARF on (Mac) OS X.
