[cdt-dev] Couple issues with DSF


I had downloaded and installed Eclipse 3.5M5 and CDT M5.
Under implession of DSF capabilities, I was going to test it.

Unfortunately, I've encountered couple problems that I do not know how to avoid.

So, first, I have a makefile project for Skyeye for Windows. Usually,
I'm debugging it with ordinal Local Application configuration. It
works fine.
I had created a DSF Local Application configuration which has failed
to debug the program. Here is the error:

Error in final launch sequence
  Failed to execute MI command:
-gdb-set auto-solib-add off
Error message from debugger back end:
No symbol "auto" in current context.

Perhaps, the problem is the version of the GDB. I'm using
GNU gdb 6.3.50_2004-12-28-cvs (cygwin-special)

Is DFS expecting some newer?

Next problem is DSF Remote Application.
For the ARM program that runs on skyeye (which is particulary ARM
simulator with remote debugging support) I'm typically using GDB
Hardware Debugging. It has a lot of options which allows me, for
instance, halt on connection to remote target. Thus I can start
debugging even the binary code at start address (like 0xffff0000).

DSF Remote Application does not provide such options. I can specify
the function name but not the address, for example... Is it possible
Another problem is the call stack when I hit the initial breapboint.
Hardware debugger shows it (almost) correctly but DSF fails with it:

M2000_ZQ DSF [C/C++ Remote Application  (Experimental - DSF)]	
		Thread[1]  (Suspended : BREAKPOINT)	

Hardware debugger shows at the same case:

M2000_ZQ HW [GDB Hardware Debugging]	
	GDB Hardware Debugger (07.02.09 21:51) (Suspended)	
		Thread [1] (Suspended)

			2 __thread_stub()  0x00f3e0c8	
			1 __thread_stub()  0x00f3e0c8	
	D:\Install\GDB\gdb-\gdb\gdb.exe (07.02.09 21:51)	
	C:\p4\views\KSW_M2000_ZQ_DEV_0331\m2000\m2000.elf (07.02.09 21:51)	

Does it means that DSF is not suitable for such debugging?
