Subject: Re: Executable crashes at __libc_start_main

I checked the core dump.

At addr 0x00016230 (init_array) value is 0xc8000082 as reported by r3.
So either someone corrupted it or the OS corrupted it at loading.

The mentioned platform does not ship gdb. Any idea on how to "debug"
this? Even if it shipped gdb I don't think the error would be
reproducible, since it works great on other ARM systems.
