Re: gdb broken inside emacs (again? still?)

Debugging anything within emacs is thus completely impossible at this time.

cgf has already stated that this will be fixed in the next release of gdb; see

Sorry, must have missed that one. Thanks for pointing me at it.

In the meantime, can't you use gdb 7.3.50-1? If you also have problems with that release, please send detailed instructions for reproducing the problem (starting with emacs -Q).
No luck:

$ cygcheck -cd | grep gdb
gdb                         7.3.50-1
libgdbm4                    1.8.3-20
$ emacs -Q -nw
M-x gdb
Run gdb (like this): gdb
(gdb) quit
... long time passes...
 C-c C-cQuit
(gdb) ^D
Debugger finished

P.S. If you're building your own emacs and using a Cygwin snapshot, you'll need to apply my patch to fix the memory allocation problem that we discussed a few months ago. You can get this by using setup.exe to download the source for emacs-23.3-3.
That would explain why emacs-bootstrap.exe keeps hanging. I'll try building from the patched source tree and see what happens.
