bug#5404: 23.1.91; Nextstep port: M-x gdb hangs in tab completion of sym


From: Steve Revilak
Subject: bug#5404: 23.1.91; Nextstep port: M-x gdb hangs in tab completion of symbols
Date: Sun, 17 Jan 2010 09:25:34 -0500
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.19 (2009-01-05)

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

I'd like to report a problem with M-x gdb in the Nextstep port of
emacs 23.1.91.  When gud mode is started with M-x gdb, tab completion
of symbols (i.e., gud-gdb-complete-command) causes emacs to hang.

The release announcement for emacs 23.1.91 noted a major change in M-x
gdb (<http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2009-12/msg01109.html>)
and this seems to be new behavior in 23.1.91.


Steps To Reproduce
------------------

 1) Start with foo.c

---------------------------------
#include <stdio.h>

static int add_one(int x) {
  return (x + 1);
}

int main(void) {
  int y = add_one(3);
  printf("%d\n", y);
  return 0;
}
---------------------------------

 2) Compile foo.c

$ make CFLAGS="-g -Wall" foo cc -g -Wall foo.c -o foo

 3) Start emacs with the command line

    /Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs -Q -nw foo.c

    Above, "-nw" isn't necessary for reproducing this behavior.  -nw
    just makes it easier to capture what emacs is displaying.

 4) Type M-x gdb RET

    Emacs responds with "Run gdb (like this): gdb --annotate=3 foo".

    Press RET to accept the gdb command line.

 5) Emacs creates a *gud-foo* buffer, whose initial contents are

---------------------------------

(gdb) ---------------------------------

 6) At the (gdb) prompt, type "b add_", then TAB

 7) After pressing TAB, emacs becomes unresponsive.

    Emacs stays unresponsive until Ctrl-G is pressed.


Observations from edebug
------------------------

I've used M-x edebug-defun to instrument different functions in
gud.el, so that I could step through them with emacs debugger.
Emacs seems to hang when evaluating the expression

  (get-buffer-process gud-comint-buffer)

in line 981 of gud.el.  This line is part of defun
gud-gdb-run-command-fetch-lines.


Observations from gdb
---------------------

While emacs was hung (i.e., after completing step 7, above), I
attached a debugger to emacs.  Here is a backtrace:
