My debugger crashed while debuging gpsdrive, so i've no detailed 

After running gpsdrive with kismet a while, gpsdrive crashes.
It crashes because of a buffer overflow in the readkismet function.
I searched the sourcecode for unsecure functions, but didn't realy find any.

It could not be an overflow in kbuffer, which i tought at the beginning, 
because kbuffer must be on heap and not on stack.

Did anyone knows a debugger which can visualize the content of the stack 
memory? I think watching the content of the stack would be the easyest way to 
find this bug.
