gdb crashes my machine

- Subject: gdb crashes my machine
gdb typically runs fairly well for me, but in some cases where my
program crashes, gdb prints out the fact that my program crashed and
prints the name of some random function I've never heard of (I can get
the name if it would help). gdb then appears to hang my machine.
Killing it via control-option-delete will just kill the whole machine.
I'm currently using WinME (since that's what I had on my machine).
Would it be better to upgrade to Win2K or (groan) XP? Is this a known
problem in gdb?
I'll try to track down the exact thing that my program is doing wrong,
but if I recall the last time this happened, it was that I had a
function pointer that as NULL and I was calling through it.
Any suggestions appreciated. I did try searching the archives, but
searching for 'gdb crash' is an exercise in futility :)
