To find out what caused that fault, use the bt command: backtrace.

It happened in strdup() so that's usually because the string you are trying to 
copy (or copy to) is not accessible - maybe not properly initialised. The 
fault is not necessarily in the file identified above, it just showed up 
there. Use up and down commands after getting the backtrace to inspect the 
calls that lead to the segmentation fault.

You can't usually continue after a segmentation fault - or if you try you 
won't get predictable behaviour.
