Description soldatov 2011-04-08 11:09:44 UTC
- Create InputOutput project
- Push Step into
- Add 'i' new watch
- Push Finish button
==> debugger hangs on "24-gdb-exit" command in Debugger Console

Workaround: restart IDE only

Any evaluation?
Comment 2 Alexander Pepin 2011-04-13 15:27:27 UTC
In 6.9.1 we also had problems with watches on Mac due to gdb 6.3.5 ant this problem appeared after fixing some of "watches" issues. I believe we should try to fix it in the patch.
Comment 3 stiffuser 2011-04-15 19:24:37 UTC
I'm experiencing the same issue. Every time a watch is deemed invalid, debugging stops to work and the IDE has to be restarted.

Comment 5 Egor Ushakov 2011-05-23 16:40:41 UTC
it is a bug of gdb on MacOSX, steps to reproduce:
>gdb --interpreter=mi ./quote_4
>b main
>-var-create - @ xxx
>-var-show-attributes "var1"
Bus error
and gdb silently crashes after that

I will add a special check for that on macosx
