I've actually been working on something like that for a while now and
got to the point where the tool/application/whatever will indeed dump a
backtrace for the last 3 or 4 methods/functions.

Unfortunately, it will then hit an invalid SEL'ector and really crash
with a core dump, on occasion taking X11 with it (in case of
applications) -- though I believe it is really Window Maker receiving
the signal (as I screw with those as well) and not knowing what to do
with it, it will take X11 down... :-P
