Debugger terminates when array is expanded in Variables window? [message #1849734] Mon, 31 January 2022 15:46 Go to next message

I have a problem when debugging arrays.

I run an executable, hit a breakpoint, then I go to "Variables" window to look into local variable values. However, when I have a bigger array, let's say float [4][512], and I try to expand it to see the values, my debugging session suddenly terminates! This does not happen every time, but happens 90% of the time!

This happens since several Eclipse CDT versions, even with latest one.

What could be the reason??

Linux Ubuntu 18.04.

Happens with large structures.
The only solution is to not view it.

Buffer overflow? Happens more often with uninitalized sets
