Description of problem:
If you log in using a french language locale, gdb will emit nice french messages
to the console, some of which contain accents. These messages look garbled when
displayed through Eclipse.
For instance, here's a gdb error message that looks great on the console, but
messed up through Eclipse.
Warning: Cannot insert breakpoint 0. Error accessing memory address 0x1: Erreur
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in using french.
2.Create a simple hello world app
3.Step through to the very end. I get the above error message every time when I
run the Taroon beta eclipse snapshot on RHL9.
For the time being, I've set up the gcj-eclipse to force
LANG=C. This also works around bugs reported on the public
compiled-eclipse list about locale-related failures.
BTW, these reports should be pushed to the upstream
