Dear Eli,

1) I must admit that I am not very familiar with GDB. I have done some
programming so I am familiar with the basic concepts but not the tool.
If you give me an outline of what to do I can try to do it (I do not
mean step by step instructions, I guess I can figure something out and
if I really can't I could ask for clarifications).

2) Currently this is what I am doing. I have some virtual machines of
otherdistributions (vanilla installations) that I use to test for bugs
(cross-check).

I see that on kubuntu 16.10 with emacs 24.5.1 and with emacs25.1.2 the
problem does not appear: everything works smoothly.


3) Just a question: is there a way to ask emacs to dump the info about
the versions of all the libraries it uses?


Let me know what to do.

Thanks!

Gena
