Did that November last year. I've exchanged many emails with Windriver,
but so far we haven't made any progress. That's why I thought that maybe
asking the real gdb experts here could help. Because from the info I
gathered in the internet, I thought this problem was already solved with
a patch for 6.8.
So of course the question remains, if and when (i.e. which version)
the patch went upstream into the sources.
And I also hoped that maybe there's some workaround for the version 7.2
we are using.

Ok, I'll give 7.5.1 a try in the next days.

There are two ways to write error-free programs.  Only the third one works.
