Description Magnus Ihse 2003-01-13 16:04:54 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
Start gdb and attach to a running process.

Stop the process from another shell. Now try to quit gdb:

(gdb) quit
(gdb) The program is running.  Quit anyway (and detach it)? (y or n) y
Can't detach LWP 6865: No such process

To quit gdb, you need to do "kill" first. (Unless you despair and kill gdb from 
another shell). A quit should never fail.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
See description.

Actual Results:  gdb says:
Can't detach LWP 6865: No such process
and doesn't quit.

Expected Results:  gdb should have quit.
