Hi, thanks for the reply, I just run the objdump -dSC a.exe under Windows, and I found the similar content. 

So, it looks like the line "std::map<int, std::string>  m;" associates many instruction pieces. Those pieces include the calling of the std::map's destructor.

When leaving the main function body, the instruction piece of the destructor will reached, and gdb just refer to the declaration line. So that gdb put the current source line back to "std::map<int, std::string>  m;" again.

My explanation is right?

I'm not quite sure what DW_LNS_negate_stmt means, any way, I will forward my question to GCC maillist.
