I'll need a bit more guidance here.  Simply running it manually with
the same arguments as it would have when started by its rc script simply

  (gdb) set args -R -f /usr/pkg/etc/minidlna.conf
  (gdb) run
  Starting program: /usr/pkg/sbin/minidlnad -R -f /usr/pkg/etc/minidlna.conf
  [Inferior 1 (LWP 0) exited normally]
  (gdb) bt
  No stack.

but there was still a syslog entry with matching timestamp that reported
the overflow/terminated condition.

The main(?) minidlnad process is still present even after exiting.

So, perhaps I need gdb to follow fork() and look at the process it spawned?
I'm still quite the neophyte with respect to gdb.
