I'm using the Insigth 5.0 release + patch for eCos.
If I use the Insight GUI, pressing the Stop button does nothing (in fact the
whole GUI seems frozen) Typing Ctrl+C in the console window of insight
doesn't help more.


When launching only the cmd line interface (gdb -nw) ctrl+c works.
With the GUI interface, sending an explicit sigint to the process (kill
-sigint pid) works as it should. With the message RDI_execute: you pressed

So it seems this is only a problem with the GUI.
