Yes, I'm getting a full trace now, thanks.

I didn't notice the error in gdb's output as it got lost amongst the
other messages. I've never used gdb before so I thought all of this
output was normal.

The web site (
https://www.opensips.org/Documentation/TroubleShooting-Crash) mentioned

gdb /usr/local/sbin/opensips core.6645

but on my system the binary is /usr/sbin/opensips. I've been juggling a
lot in my mind recently and I imagined that /usr/local/sbin/opensips
was just a directory containing the core file or something.

Anyway, I can now report the crashes with proper traces - 
https://github.com/OpenSIPS/opensips/issues I presume.
