Debugging crashes in imported libraries

I'm making use of the XMP library to read photo metadata.

 

I have a photo that is causing the XMP library to crash. (actually, it doesn't crash on the simulator, only on device)

 

The exact line of my code is:

 

            SXMPMeta meta;
            myFile.GetXMP(&meta);

 

The stack trace is:

 

crash3.PNG

 

I've used this code with dozens of photos and never had any issues.  The photo I'm testing with at the moment was just exported from Photoshop as a JPEG a moment ago.

 

Anyway, my question I suppose is a bit of a general one.  What should one do when one is using some library and it blows up, and you have no idea why?  Are you up the creek?

 

Thanks,
Daniel
