26 27 28 29 30 31

If the crash is reproducible, it is possible to get a stack trace and 
attach it to the bug report. The following steps are used to obtain a 
stack trace -
	
	Run the program in gdb [the GNU debugger] or any other debugger
32
		ie. gdb gnome-keyboard-properties
33 34 35 36
	Start the program
		ie. (gdb) run
	Reproduce the crash and the program will exit to the gdb prompt
	Get the back trace
37
		ie. (gdb) bt full
38 39

Once you have the backtrace, copy and paste this either into the 
40
'Comments' field or attach a file with it included.
