      Description

      Currently standard procedure to deal with segfaults is to run a debugger. While this works for developers it is inconvenient for end users and potentially impossible for intermittent bugs on large clusters.
      Hence automatically printing a backtrace on segfault can be useful to quickly diagnose problems.
      A quick trial implementation suggests that relatively easy, this ticket aims to add this functionally to the stack.
