Subject: [Caml-list] Debugging mixed ocaml/C code
Does anyone have any suggestions for debugging mixed ocaml/C code?  I 
have some code that uses a wrapper for the Berkeley DB.  When using some 
features of that wrapper (namely transaction support), I find that my 
app segfaults.  Unfortunately, it doesn't do the nice thing and segfault 
inside of the wrapper in a way that makes the bug findable with printfs. 
  Instead, it segfaults in a predictable place in the ocaml code 
instead.  (Surprisingly, it segfaults in the same place if I compile to 
native code or bytecode.)

My question is, does anyone have any suggestions as to how one might go 
about tracking down such a bug?  Are any of the standard debuggers (gdb, 
ocamldebug) useful for mixed ocaml/C code?
