Description Jan Kratochvil 2008-03-27 14:40:02 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #439234 +++

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):
gdb-6.3.0.0-1.156.el4.src (only verified the problem exists in the source)

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.
