Re: trashed stack libdcekt.1

>Pid xxxxx killed due to trashed stack' message

This typically occurs if the SP register isn't valid.
You could also have a thread stack overflow.
What is the size of your thread stack? See my comments in this thread. You need to check frame 0 and frame 16 in this case.
