Wow, you're lucky that you get it to stop at the breakpoint.  I don't get even
that :-(

Comment 3 Alexandre Oliva 2006-03-08 23:49:48 UTC
A patch that should fix this problem is in gdb-, please give it a
try as soon as it finishes building.

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2006-07-10 20:48:12 UTC
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.  This bug was
originally filed against FC3 and has remained in NEEDINFO state for quite some
time.  Many packages and bugfixes have been made since the last substantive bug

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
