In GDB 20040521 commands
"-stack-list-frames" "-stack-list-arguments 0"
are 10-20 times slower and in some cases are executed
in seconds. (Up to 30 seconds with stack depth 16 on
P4 2.4).

Is it a build regression or developers regression?
What can be done here?

Was mingw build gdb 20040521 compiled with
optimizations?
On which version of gcc?

    Does this still cause a problem with gdb-6.3-2 ?

    I'll test it when I'll have the possibility to do it.

    As for me the case still exists on the latest gdb mingw edition.
    FYI Gdb is still too buggy when it comes to the need to get a callstack in the code which consists of two dll's runtime - the msvc compiled one calls some function from the gdb compiled dll.
    All the problems are in such situation (Slowdown and constant gpf's getting callstack) .

    If this issue still exists please report it to gdb bugs queue.
