Description Ravi Ramaseshan 2008-03-27 17:01:08 UTC
Description of problem:

The problem occurs with a large program that I am debugging. It has been
correctly diagnosed and fixed in the URL. It is fixed in later versions of GDB
too (6.7 for sure).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GNU gdb Red Hat Linux (6.5-25.el5_1.1rh)

How reproducible:
I guess while debugging large programs, try and print some values.
Actual results:
dwarf2_read_address: Corrupted DWARF expression.

Expected results:
values for variables.
