I've installed libreoffice-dbg, but the package is based on 4.1.3, and
if I run soffice --backtrace this version is launched, which seems correct.
If I run gdb /opt/libreoffice4.2/program/soffice.bin, I've no symbols
here :) So I think you're right, I may need my own build with debug
symbols enabled.
