Description of problem:
gdb running under emacs crashed with this message:

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

BFD: Please report this bug.

Debugger exited abnormally with code 1

It happened when I tried to run a program that was already running.  It gave me the usual warning and I said yes, start it from the beginning.  It then crashed.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Comment 1 Jan Kratochvil 2006-07-24 06:56:59 EDT
Sorry but not enough info for reproducibility.  Specific debugged program and
reproducibility state would be needed.  NEEDINFO suggested.
Comment 2 David L. 2006-07-24 10:35:04 EDT
I have not seen this problem again.  I only reported it because it asked me
nicely to report it.  ;)  I thought the line number might be enough to give a
hint as to the bug or at least to add additional diagnostic prints when the bug
happens again.  I usually don't re-run a running program like I did when this
crashed, so if it has something to do with that, it may be more reproducible
than my experience would indicate.
Comment 3 Jan Kratochvil 2006-08-15 20:01:05 EDT
Thanks for the bugreport, more reproducibility info would be needed, though.
