There's not quite enough information in this backtrace to be useful -- see the 
stuff like:

Thread 4 (Thread 1133735216 (LWP 8444)):
#0  0xffffe002 in ?? ()
No symbol table info available.
#1  0x0814ab6b in RingBuffer::startReader(void*) (type=0x85fb180)
    at RingBuffer.cpp:673

I'd need to see where it's at at #0 to see where it's stuck (That's the 
portion of code where the problem is).  A backtrace of the backend at the 
same point in time would also be quite helpful.
