Debug: Assertion failed 'false' at Bistro/elf/unwind_reader.cpp:316 Wrong lsda start

I'm trying to profile elmer (www.csc.fi/elmer) an open source Finite Element solver. Other (simpler) applications I've tried appear to profile okay

I've tried compiling it with both gcc/g++/ifort and icc/ifort with no difference in vtune's ability to profile it.

The application runs perfectly okay normally.

using vtune I get:

[ erij 2.6.11.4-21.9 ] /opt/intel/vtune/bin/vtl activity ElmerSolver-gcc -c callgraph
-app ../bin/ElmerSolver -moi ../bin/ElmerSolver run

Does a sampling session work? Would be interesting to see if you could get a nice 20 second collection of default events, instructions retired and clockticks. I'm guessing this will work but you want a callgraph of course.
For callgraph consider minimizing the instrumentation levels for ALL functions and trying the callgraph session again. If it runs, and it should, then you gradually edit the callgraph activity so that functions are added one at a time, to find out which one seems to be causing the problem. For more details:
$ man callgraph

Well, it looks like several things are failing here:
1. check the global-options and make sure buffer-size is not zero. If it is zero, set it to 10 MB or something like that. Use 'vtl global-options' to examine.
2. make sure LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set so that the reference to libelmersolver.so__local_richard_Apps_elmer-gcc_lib is resolved.
If, after resolving those issues, you still get a BISTRO error, try running bistro standalone on the executable. To do that, first, source a script file:
$ source /opt/intel/vtune/bin/clscripts.common
Then run bistro on the executable:
$ /opt/intel/vtune/analyzer/bin/bistro -i ElmerSolver-gcc -symbol_info ElmerSolver-gcc -instr_type full
See 'bistro -?' for all options. By running it standalone, you can sometimes get better error messages and determine what is wrong.
If you get an error you can't resolve or understand, please submit an issue at Intel Premier Support.
Regards,
