A backtrace would be a bit more useful (bt command in gdb). Even more useful
would be a backtrace with debug information compiled in (--with-debug
configure option for both libol and syslog-ng)

A syslog-ng binary and the core file itself could also help (make sure they
don't contain sensitive information)
