You may try to find the culprit with gdb, although it didn't work too

Initially, there were few or no postal regulations governing packages mailed
parcel post. To construct a bank in Vernal, Utah in 1916, a Salt Lake City
Company figured out that the cheapest way to send 40 tons of bricks to the
building was by Parcel Post. Each brick was individually wrapped & mailed.
Postal rules were promptly rewritten.
