What version of Go are you using (go version)?


What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?


What did you do?

I have a program written by Go, which is running to monitor the folder content and do something.
Normally it's working very well, but today I get a coredump file for this program.

What did you see instead?

There is a crash happened:

Backtrace stopped: previous frame identical to this frame (corrupt stack?)

From the crash call stack, there isn't any info related with my program, could you help check is it a crash caused by the runtime ? many thanks.

it is from a core dump.

Do you mean the panic is happened inside the runtime or the application code invoke the panic ? If it is the app code call the panic somewhere, there should show the function from app in this call stack, right?

Unfortunately, the core dump does not contain enough information to know what caused the panic. It likely was caused by your application or a library it called, but we just don't know without seeing the output that was printed on stderr. Issue #16893 will add the panic logs to the core dump, so in the future we'll be able to tell you more.

Closing this issue since there isn't anything actionable we can do with this traceback.
