Compiled mytest with FreeBSD clang version 3.3 that uses a shared library (based on mylib.c). The assembly and the lldb symbol lookup don't seem to match, i.e. the instruction at address 0x400878 uses "a" in 0x600c08, which is in the range of mytest (rather than the shared library where "a" is held at 0x0000000800a1b820). Note: using gdb shows t…
