[ Thank you for all the work on Emacs, it so much helps my daily work ]

I'm debugging the MySQL Server with "M-x gdb".
Works great in Emacs23, for years. But it seems to break with upgrade to 24 (package of Ubuntu 15.10), and similarly in 25 pretest built-from-source. Here is my experience today with emacs 25; it's been consistently my experience for the last months, and a colleague has seen this too.

Using "emacs -Q".
M-x gdb, then I chdir to the directory where MySQL is, then
"file ./mysqld".

Using all-stop mode (that is the default choice).

After issuing the "run" command, MySQL is waiting for client
connections. Ok so far.


STOP button doesn't stop (prints "command: -exec-interrupt")
Menu Signals->STOP doesn't stop.
C-c C-z  doesn't stop.

(In Emacs23 the STOP button did stop and it was sending

Menu Signals->Break, or C-c C-c, stop properly.

Suggestion: make the STOP button do as Signals->Break does
(=send SIGINT), and like it did in emacs23.

Perhaps another factor is MySQL ignoring STOP, but I don't think so, as
doing 'kill -STOP' to the PID of mysql, in a shell, does stop it (but then it's hell to resume it, have to press "continue" for tens of times,
perhaps because it has tens of threads).


After a "c"(continue) above, now MySQL is resumed, waiting for
client connections.
I wish to set a breakpoint.

I do C-c C-c to interrupt, then in the menu Gud->gdb-mi->"display other
windows": screen gets split in 6 frames (ok).
All frames show the same gdb output.
In the middle left frame, I open a source file (C-x C-f).
I click in the left fringe near a code line: no breakpoint gets set
I put cursor on that line, press C-x SPC: prints "mark set (rectangle
mode)"; doesn't set breakpoint either.
(Both techniques worked in emacs23.)
When putting the cursor in the source file, GUD-specific menu is
replaced by ordinary menu; like if GUD wasn't considering this file.

However, C-x C-a C-b sets breakpoint.

After the breakpoint is set, I type "c".
Run a MySQL query, gdb stops at breakpoint.
Then, clicking on left fringe near a code line in the same source
file, few lines below the breakpoint, sets a breakpoint: unlike at the first try above, it works. Like if GUD was now considering the file, now that it has broken into it?

MySQL is stopped at the breakpoint. I click the "step line" button: as this stepping leads to another function in another source file, that other source file is opened (fine) but in the "breakpoints" frame (bottom right frame); this has the effect that:
- breakpoints list is invisible
- I'm always scanning through frames with my eyes to find where the
execution pointer is now.
(In Emacs23, the new file just replaces the old file. And when stepping
out later, the old file would replace the new file).

I do "restore window layout" which properly restores the
"breakpoints" list in its frame, and puts the stepped-in file in the
middle left. It's a workaround, but it's tedious as I have to do it


The program is in the stepped-in function, clicking "Step out" steps out
of it, but this doesn't print the returned value.
Emacs23 prints it ("Value returned is $1 = false").

After "c" the query finishes. I send the same query again, but this
time the issue 2 doesn't happen anymore (i.e. the stepped-in
source file is displayed where it should, replacing the old file, and
not in the "breakpoints" frame).

"GNU gdb (Ubuntu 7.10-1ubuntu2) 7.10"

"GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.16.6)

As workaround, I'm currently using a built-from-source 23.4.1 which
works fine.
