Description Valentyn Pavliuchenko 2010-04-29 22:15:26 UTC
Version:           4.0 (using KDE 4.4.2)
Compiler:          4.4.3 20100108 
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

If you add an incorrect watch in the debugger, it will have no value. It confuses users.
Correct behavior: show an error message about bad watch. 
At least: "error: bad expression". Smth more informative will be better.
Comment 1 Andreas Pakulat 2010-04-29 22:34:39 UTC
I have to wonder wether maybe the problem is with gdb not telling us the watch is invalid.
Comment 2 Valentyn Pavliuchenko 2010-04-30 08:54:15 UTC
I'll try to obtain some extra information about the issue.

show error in variables view when gdb returns an error

don't use the returned msg from gdb as it has no real value
and refers to implementation details
("-var-create: unable to create variable object")
