Could I suggest downloading a post 5.0 snapshot (see ) and trying the problem
out on just GDB (use gdb -nw ....).  What you have described sounds like
a GUI problem.

It would also be helpful if there there was a copy of the actual GDB
session so it is clear what is happening.

As for the bug, one starting point is to try stepi instead of step.  GDB
implements step using a sequence of STEPI's.

Hmm, to the best of my knowledge there was never an official ``4.18.1''
release.  I suspect you've picked up a custom job.
