Reading specs from 
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (TWW)


To recreate the problem is easy, which  is unusual. Using the sample.c program 
in the ddd manual, attached.

compile it and run it with, 

$ gcc -g -o sample sample.c
$ ddd gcc 8000 7000 5000 1000 4000

put a breakpoint on the line a = (int *)malloc((.......
use the run option and when the execution stops, then one single step

Now use the menu option data->memory...

set examine to 16 and select hex, and enter the address of the variable 'a'.

I got the address by hovering the cursor over the 'a' in the line you have the 
break point on.
