I just recompiled python adding -g to my cflags, and I get the exact same
back trace.  "bt full" gives:

(gdb) bt full
#0  0xb7d2aa93 in strlen () from /lib/
No symbol table info available.
#1  0xb7e6f365 in PyString_FromString () from /usr/lib/
No symbol table info available.
#2  0xb7bcdb3e in ?? ()
   from /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/dbus/
No symbol table info available.
#3  0x00000000 in ?? ()
No symbol table info available.

Everything involved is compiled with debugging symbols included, so I don't
know what's going on with the "No symbol table available" message.  I'm
trying to checkout the latest code right now, so I'll see how things work
