>(patch vs. "regular" gdb-6.8 attached).  However, I *think* that given this:

I'm sorry.  I haven't been giving this my full attention since I have a
working version of gdb and insight and thought you were asking insight

I'm wondering if it would just be best for me to continue in this vein.
It probably won't be worthwhile to be splitting responsibilities
because, frankly, I REALLY don't want to be debugging your end of things
along with my own.  This probably sounds mean but I don't mean it to be.
I just don't want to have to devote double the amount of brain power to
figuring out my own gdb issues along with yours and then coordinating
with you every time I find a problem.
