Description of problem:
I'm not sure if this can be considered a real bug, or just an inelegance, but
the message says to report it, so...

If I reinstall a binary while gdb is still open on the previous incarnation of
that binary, then on exit gdb produces an internal error.

BFD: BFD 2.15.93 20041018 internal error, aborting at ../../gdb-6.3/bfd/cache.c
line 495 in bfd_cache_lookup_worker


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdb-6.3.0.0-1.21

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gdb someapp
2. from another window, reinstall someapp
3. exit gdb

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 12:09:24 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:

doesn't happen again.

first requested. As a result we are closing it.
