Description Need Real Name 2002-11-19 13:03:58 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Source file kdbg/main.cpp contains incorrect definition for command 
line options.
This definition must be done in accordance with KDELIBS-3.0 documentation (see
The last structure of options array must be {0,0,0}.
But in  kdbg/main.cpp we see:
static KCmdLineOptions options[] = {
        { "t <file>", I18N_NOOP("transcript of conversation with the 
debugger"), 0 },
        { "r <device>", I18N_NOOP("remote debugging via <device>"), 0 },
        { "+[program]", I18N_NOOP("path of executable to debug"), 0 },
        { "+[core]", I18N_NOOP("a core file to use"), 0}
GCC 2.96 - and GCC 3.2-compiled chooser run succesfully.
But if another compiler (such as Intel C++ compiler for Linux) is being used 
chooser crashes in the function parseAllArgs () at kcmdlineargs.cpp 
line#536: "if (option->name[0] == '+')"

The simplest way to solve the problem is to add {0,0,0} at the end of command 
line options (patch is attached).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install Intel C++ compiler for Linux the "kdbg" package using Intel C++ compiler kdbg

Actual Results:  Segmentation fault

Expected Results:  Application window must be shown
