I guess so - but quite frankly I'm a bit uneasy to do this without further 
exploration about the actual causes here. Afaik DWARF does not say anything 
about the validity, so in theory there might be some language/compiler that 
encodes valid DWARF locations with line 0?

Generally, it would be quite interesting to figure out why there is /some/ 
DWARF data here such that the code thinks it's able to decode the inline frame 
but then fails and leads to this confusing result?
