There are probably a bunch of other limitations to support 6.3
We basically ran some tests with 6.6, 6.7 and 6.8.
Maybe 6.3 won't be a huge effort to support, so if you want to 
run some test and report bugs, we can see how much work it would be.

You mean that the session aborts when auto-solib-add fails?
I could turn that off, but I'm guessing other things will fail also.
The easiest way would be for you to modify DSG-GDB in your workspace
and keep testing 6.3.  Then you can report what you found.

So there is value (sometimes) in connecting to the target and
giving control to the user?  I guess there could be an option in the
for that.  Does CDI support it?  do you know?
Can you write a bug?

This may also be related to 6.3
MI was not very complete in older GDBs
