Just wanted to toss out an observation in case it may help someone or
tickle a response as to how to improve the problem.
I noticed when I was running a 2.4.20-6um kernel with a RedHat-ish
rootfs and a gdb-5.2.1-4 that applications ran impossibly slowly inside
the debugger. Doing simple things like 'next' took minutes.
I then switched to gdb-5.3 and the problem was improved somewhat but it
is still very slow to step through an application and I see the host CPU
usage goes to 100%.
Thanks for any help,
G. S. Marzot (Joe)
