            Bug ID: 22868
           Summary: cannot pass SIGSEGV on darwin arm
           Product: lldb
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P

On darwin arm (iOS 8.1.3, XCode 6.1.1) lldb always stops on EXC_BAD_ACCESS and
will not continue. The result is SIGSEGV cannot be passed. That is, this does
not work:

    process handle SIGSEGV --stop false --pass true --notify false

Programs that expect to continue processing by turning SIGSEGV into an
exception cannot be run under lldb. In particular this affects the Go
programming language:


For now we are working around it by registering a mach exception handler on the
thread port. But ideally lldb would be able to see the signal and choose what
to do with it.
