RE: [cdt-dev] breakpoints with basename

I know the reasons (kind of), that why I suggest to make it an option.
The reason is when you compile on different host full path name would not
match the path in debug info and debugger would fail to add breakpoint. This
combined with some compiler weird source paths inserts creates unreadable
full paths, like this:
which nobody can parse (this is real example of path return by break-insert
of 2.95 compiler + gdb 6.7).

So what are the options in GDB-DSF?

GDB-DSF has a more options in dealing with this problem because it is 
currently only being targeted at latest version of GDB (6.7) and at that 
only at Linux.  That said, a new contributor from Ericsson, Tobias, is 
looking at making it work with GDB on windows and he is running into 
issues with using the full path in the -break-insert command.  See bug 
219920 for further discussion.  I think there are a lot of historical 
reasons for not using the full path with breakpoints in GDB-CDI, and I 
would also be grateful if someone with a lot of CDT tribal knowledge 
could distill these reasons for us.
