[LLVMdev] Stack trace - clang

I am new to LLVM and am trying to modify clang for some work. I tried to 
insert an instruction: prefetchnta $100 at the beginning of a function. 
I encountered a problem when I tried to debug it with gdb. There was an 
assertion failure and printed some information without stack trace. The 
process has been finished when it printed the information. I tried to 
set a breakpoint at the operator[] with:
llvm::SmallVectorTemplateCommon<llvm::MCOperand>::operator[](unsigned int)
  The program did not stop there either.  Here is what it printed. The 
question is: how can I print the stack trace when there is an assertion 
failure. Thanks tons.

clang: /export/home/zbin/llvm/llvm/include/llvm/ADT/SmallVector.h:163: 
const T& llvm::SmallVectorTemplateCommon<T>::operator[](unsigned int) 
const [with T = llvm::MCOperand]: Assertion `begin() + idx < end()' failed.

clang is built with gmake ENABLE_OPTIMIZED=1 .
Also I tried with the debug version of clang. It did not work either. I 
am really stumped on this bug. Thank you very much.
