     24=== Fatal Bugs ===
     25
     26In a special case of reporting a fatal bug/crash please run the program under the debugger and include the stack trace at the moment of the crash in your report.
     27
     28Under Unix it is as simple as running `gdb your-program-name` (under OS X, use `gdb your-app/Contents/MacOS/your-app`), typing `r` in gdb and then typing `bt` when the crash happens. You may do it even with non-debug build of wxWidgets as this should still give us at least the names of the functions but ideally you should rebuild wxWidgets with debug information as this would give the line numbers and parameter values as well.
     29
     30Under Windows you should use a debug build and run the program under Microsoft Visual Studio debugger if you're using MSVC compiler or under WinDBG otherwise.
