[Converted from Gnats 1798]

Problem occurs while using gdb to debug C/C++ programs with embedded Sun JVM. 

The JVM can generate SIGSEGV's as part of it's normal garbage collection. The JVM traps and handles these signals. 

However, gdb terminates the program C/C++ program.

Is there some way gdb could ignore the SIGSEGV's from the JVM, while continuing to process other SIGSEGV's in it's normal way?

I think this could probably be done if there were a way to
attach commands to a "signal breakpoint".
However, AFAIK there is no way to do this.
I'm closing this as a duplicate of the feature request for "catch signal".
