by linking your program against the libc, it automatically becomes a
dynamically-linked executable. Hence, the program's execution does not
start at the program binary but inside the dynamic linker (,
which is then responsible to load the real binary along with the the
shared libs. At the startup, all instruction pointers found in the
backtrace are most likely referring to instructions inside ''.
