I just wanted to report that the declaration of "abort" in glibc is not
going to be changed to be more compatible with debugging.

<URL:http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=6522> shows my
report and its resolution.
Sigh.  I concluded a long time ago that it is useless to ask GCC and
glibc developers to cater to debugging needs.  At best, you are
ignored; but more often you are flamed back into silence.

I was a bit amused about "stop keeping to reopen".  I reopened once,
giving detailed reasons and citing additional manpage data.  When the
thing was basically closed without looking at the argument after a month
of silence.  So it could not have been all that painful.

I'm sorry that you, David, wasted your effort as well on this.

The discussion of the bug looked like a very difficult thing ;-)

I do not understand the details, but the only thing that looked like a response at all was that UD said there was a workaround, "just add gcc flag". Just from the non-friendly tone I would expect this to be a half lie - half true.

What did he mean and why does it not work as you would like it to?
