Re: gdb 6.5 on AIX 5.3 not hitting breakpoints

I have never seen this behavior with gdb with any other unices, but this is the first time we have run it on AIX.

I built the daily snapshot gdb I tried with a simple program and it worked:

(gdb) br main
Breakpoint 1 at 0x100003f4: file errno.c, line 11.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/cgi/errno_aix

Breakpoint 1, main (argc=1, argv=0x2ff20084) at errno.c:11
11              sscanf (argv[1], "%d", &err);

Then I tried with one of our more complicated programs and I see the behavior with it ignoring the breakpoints:

(gdb) br main
Breakpoint 1 at 0x10000a90: file cgr_heartbeat_utl.c, line 223.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /u01/obj/dcs/misc/bin/cgr_heartbeat_utl
Breakpoint 1 at 0x100000a90: file cgr_heartbeat_utl.c, line 223.

I am wondering if it isn't some weird linker options that are screwing it up or maybe we are missing some linker options. Any ideas?

As far as I can tell, appart from an unexpected warnings about the OS
ABI which I will try to investigate when I have some time, the HEAD
debugger from CVS seems to be working fine:

(gdb) b break_me Breakpoint 1 at 0x100003e4: file foo.c, line 6.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /home/brobecke/test/ex/foo Breakpoint 1, break_me () at foo.c:6
6 printf ("Hello world\n");

I suggest trying the debugger from CVS, and if that doesn't work,
then maybe trying to post more information about what compiler you
used (I assumed GCC), which version, and provide a complete example
that demonstrates the problem (sources and compilation switches that
you used to build the example).
