Well, I don't know what to tell you...

Should I send a screenshot of the window containing the message?

Would you like to come over and look at it?  Let's see... you're in Toronto,
I'm in Ohio... if you can make it here by lunchtime I can leave it on the
screen until then.  :-)

Nope, CVS was fine.

Okay.  *tries*  Well, the windows appear.  But the Source Window is
completely blank; no menubar.

Fortunately, I have the Console Window already popped by default.  I tried
loading the executable then, but:

    (gdb) load a.out
    Error: You can't do that when your target is `None'


Any thoughts?
