Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 191411
Debugger variables names not displayed properly
Last modified: 2008-05-06 11:53:44 EDT
Description of problem:
Using the pydev debugger, variable names do not display, only the green dots.
Dropping the size of gnome fonts fixes the problem sometimes, but not always.
(Doesn't work for very long variables.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
java version "1.4.2"
gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.1.0 20060304 (Red Hat 4.1.0-3)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set gnome font to 72, check out yum and yum-utils from data provided by
2. put a breakpoint in yumdownloader.py right after the main() function
i.e. (opts, args) = parseArgs()
3. step over lines until you get to avail = my.pkgSack.returnPackages(), which
creates the new variable avail that is very long.
The name portion of the variables disappears leaving only the green dots.
Variables still have names.
