Description Guenther Harrasser 2003-06-03 12:28:18 UTC
Version:           3.0.0a4 (using KDE KDE 3.1.2)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
Compiler:          gcc 3.3 linux 2.4.21-rc1
OS:          Linux

I want to debug a application using the ncurses library.
But the debugger crashes during the initscr() call.

For example...

#include <iostream>
#include <cstdlib>

#include <ncurses.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  return EXIT_SUCCESS;

I set a breakpoint at initscr() and when i step over this line the debugged terminal crashes immediately.
I'm using the seperate IO Terminal.

When i call the whole thing from the shell with the same gdb-calls it works fine.

Debugging Shell is /usr/bin/libtool.

Debbugger output:

/bin/sh -c /usr/bin/libtool gdb /home/huedi/test/test/src/test -fullname -nx -quiet

... and here i hit step over and my test-app crashes.

Please attempt to reproduce with a newer version of KDevelop (the latest released stable version is KDevelop 3.1.2).
Comment 2 Joe Button 2005-01-04 22:00:10 UTC
The test code compiled and could be run and stepped-through fine on Kdevelop 3.1.2. So I guess it's fixed.
