Right - that's the address I'd use if the process in question is still
running. But gdb <dso name> followed by relative addresses could still
tell us what the right symbol was?

There were no other filters. The command used was just "perf top".

I don't have a solid repro either. Involves building a binary, running
"perf top" and waiting for a few mins until that warning popup appears.

Will try to git bisect and figure out potential culprits.
