If a function in the library segfaults you run your program under a debugger
eg., gdb. The downside being that you have to be using a non-stripped library
and or binary to to get meaningful information back.

If your sure it's not a cockpit error, then a backtrace would help identify
your peoblem or project that problem so someone who know's what the trace
means. :-)
