Description Miroslav Franc 2012-04-11 15:46:12 UTC
Description of problem:
When looking into glibc/nscd crash I hit the following error:
`info thread' or `thread apply all bt' command are printing
"Cannot find new threads: generic error"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdb-7.2-53.el6 is BROKEN (6.3)
gdb-7.2-47.el6 is BROKEN (6.1)
gdb-7.1-29.el6 is OK     (6.0.z)
tried only on x86_64

How reproducible:
I have core file on which I can reproduce it all the time. It happened on live nscd as well, but I'm not sure about reproducibility. Unfortunately the core file has 140 MB so I don't want to attach it to the bugzilla.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gdb /usr/sbin/nscd core.nscd
2. info threads

Actual results:
Cannot find new threads: generic error

Expected results:
