What I was after is the stack trace of all of the LWPs in the buserver
process. You cannot get at those easily, since LWP is a threading system
that is not understood by the debugger (dbx or gdb). That's kinda why I
was treating the 'core file' option as something where you give the core
file to a developer. Getting that information by providing instructions
to you makes this a bit more difficult... but is probably doable. I've
only done that a couple of times before, and it involved hex editing the
core file; it may be a bit easier with Solaris dbx, but I'll need a
little time to look into it.

If someone else has information on that handy or something, go ahead :)
