- Subject: Hangs in GDB auto-complete
After I upgraded my Ubuntu system to Lucid Lynx (10.04), I started to
notice extremely slow responses from GDB when using auto-complete - from
a few seconds to several minutes (at which point I usually kill GDB out
Scanning the Web and the mailing list archives as well as the bug
tracker I couldn't find anything related and so I'm assuming it's not a
widespread problem and likely something weird that's arisen in my
system. Thus I didn't want to file a bug report, but thought I'd ask
It's very irritating, especially when I end up having to kill GDB. It
mostly occurs when I try to auto-complete using Tab, especially when
I've misspelled the initial part and there's no match. But it also
occurs sometimes when I type things like "break 422" while stepping
through a file.
I've no notion of the inner workings of GDB and no idea what this is all
due to, but perhaps someone here has some clue? It's really hampering my
work sometimes and I never saw it prior to my upgrade to 10.04.
