warning: Hit heuristic-fence-post without finding
warning: enclosing function for address 0x1fffff850
This warning occurs if you are debugging a function
without any symbols
(for example, in a stripped executable).  In that
case, you may wish to
increase the size of the search with the `set
heuristic-fence-post' command.

Otherwise, you told GDB there was a function where
there isn't one, or
(more likely) you have encountered a bug in GDB.
(gdb) list *0xdad4
0xdad4 is in kill (kill:2).
