Comment(by h.koenig):

 Replying to [comment:1 zecke]:
 > Please file such bugs upstream. Even if we are able to hack on gdb I do
 not see anyone having this pleasure during the next year. Once the bug is
 filed upstream please add the URL to this bug.

 before reporting upstraeam (how many gdb developers might have an OM/FR?)
 I'd like to be sure

 - that it's not just my error, me just starting up with OM and ARM...

 - that my Xglamo binary and .debug/Xglamo really fit together (see my
 question about different time stamp)

 - maybe even if someone can reproduce my findings (I can't beleave that
 noone so far used gdb with instruction stepping -- how to you test/debug

 - if this might be an artefact because of running a neo1973 kernel on a
 gta02v5 (btw. why is there no gta02 kernel in Om 2008.8(-update) ?).

 IMHO _then_ it makes sense to bother the gdb guys...

 BTW: I "only" have gdb-6.6 installed while gdb-6.8 source is available,
 maybe gdb-6.8 would work just fine.  gdb-6.6 is quite old and reporting
 "bugs" for 1+ year old software without testing current release ins't
 too kind either ;-)

 is there a change to get a decent gdb for testing ?
