It happens without the new code.

Sorry, I just wanted to say that because of this one issue, I will not be able to switch within our team, because we use gdb 7.1 and pretty printers and I would often run into that problem. This would mean for my situation that DSF GDB is not feature-par to CDI.

In general the impression of DSF is very good. I like the details pain in the variables view which always shows decimal, hex, and binary at once. A very simple feature, but quite some value. And also the reverse debugging may become interesting.
