I'm using gdb 6.8 with C++ code compiled by g++ 4.2.4 on Ubuntu 8.04.

I cannot print the value of local variables inside constructors (e.g. I
get 'No symbol "wire" in current context').  The code is compiled with
-g and NO optimization.

This symptom seems similar to

But that's a really ancient bug (2003!): has anyone else seen this kind
of trouble recently?
