     M-x gud-gdb RET

and will have your familiar debugging environment back.

Not quite. Even with gud-gdb, some scenarios described below (ISSUE 2)
still happen:
- with emacs25 C-x SPC doesn't set a breakpoint; with emacs23 it does.
- Same for "clicking on the fringe doesn't set breakpoint".
- the Gud menu has lost "display other windows"

Like I said, I believe this is because your program is running.

It is not running. I can repeat the problem when the display is:
Breakpoint 1, JOIN::exec (this=0x7fff70008770) at /home/mysql_src/git/cte/sql/sql_executor.cc:113
113     {

which very much suggests the program is currently stopped (thus, not running). At that point, I can open another file, and put the cursor on a line of that file, and: - C-x C-a C-b does set the breakpoint (another hint that the program isn't stopped).
- C-x SPC and clicking on the fringe, don't. In emacs23 they do.

In other words, gdb-mi sees manually-opened-files as "not my business I won't offer my shortcuts there", while gud-gdb sees it differently. The latter is more convenient.

It is not possible to know in advance all the breakpoints one will need and set them all before "run"...

I start the debugger, before the "run" command, breakpoints do work as

Before digging more in the gdb-mi discussion below, let's address one
striking point, to be sure we're talking about the same software:


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

There's no STOP button on the gdb-mi toolbar, I guess you mean add it?

There is such button; after running "M-x gdb" (which says it will run
"gdb -i=mi", so I imagine it's gdb-mi), there is a green GO button; when
running the program, this button becomes a red STOP button. Attached is
a screenshot, with the mouse pointer on the button.

This button invokes -exec-interrupt when you use gdb-mi, which is the
equivalent of the 'interrupt' command of GDB.

ok, now we agree there's a STOP button in emacs24.

  (gdb) help interrupt
  Interrupt the execution of the debugged program.

So, shouldn't this STOP button interrupt my debugged, running program (mysql)?
Pressing this STOP button in emacs23 does interrupt it.
It doesn't anymore in emacs24.
Is it considered normal?
