Description Christian Biesinger 2019-07-09 23:49:25 UTC
Create a python module with this content:
```
import gdb

def Event():
  for x in range(0, 100):
    print("Line")

gdb.post_event(Event)
```

Import it in GDB. When the pager asks you to continue, press "c" and enter, then press enter again.

Result:
readline: readline_callback_read_char() called with no handler!
Aborted
Comment 1 Christian Biesinger 2019-07-09 23:56:19 UTC
The readline callback handler got removed here:

Comment 3 Christian Biesinger 2019-07-10 00:09:03 UTC
So I think the issue is that gdb_readline_wrapper is on the stack here twice?
