Quite a long time I didn't use gdb! :-) Anyway I proceed as described hereafter; correct me if I was wrong.

postgres 2956 2955 0 22:32 ? 00:00:00 postgres: stats collector process
I connected to the postgres server using psql and I retrieved the backend pid by executing the statement "SELECT pg_backend_pid();"
I started gdb under the UNIX account postgres and I attached the backend process providing the pid returned by the statement.
I run the command responsible for creating the index and I entered "continue" in gdb for executing the command. After a while, the server crashes:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x08079e2a in slot_attisnull ()
Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
The program no longer exists.
I can't do "bt" since the program no longer exists. How can I provide more information, stack trace, and so on?
