That's odd traditionally (for me at least) it's dropped me to the gdb
prompt. Odd...

Eureka! The answer to our problems! LOL. Just kidding.

Appears that using gprof isn't an option for ffmpeg (?) so maybe other
profilers would work:
or vtune perhaps.

How do people normally profile ffmpeg? oprofile?

Also did you try attaching gdb to the running spiked process?
