            Bug ID: 25055
           Summary: breakpoint command output not visible in MI mode
           Product: gdb
           Version: 8.0.1
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mi

  Target Milestone: ---

[ Since a fix was committed corresponding to a problem report submitted to the
mailing list, filing a corresponding PR here, for ease of reference. ]

There seems to be a problem with execution of "bt" as part of
breakpoint commands in MI mode: the output of "bt" is not shown.

What I did was invoke GDB as "gdb -i=mi PROGRAM", then set a
breakpoint or a watchpoint in that program, and defined the following
as its breakpoint commands:


When the breakpoint triggers, I don't see the backtrace.

I tried other commands, like "up" and "print SOME-VARIABLE", and they
do seem to be executed and the output shown.  So why doesn't that
happen with "backtrace"?  Is it a bug or am I missing something?

(FWIW, I also tried using -break-commands, with a similar result: the
backtrace is not shown when the breakpoint triggers.)

This problem prevents "bt" from being useful in breakpoint commands
when running with the Emacs GDB front-end, which uses MI.

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
