[h-e-w] gdb program output problem

I just updated mingw, msys and emacsw32. It does appear that the latest gdb also got updated in the process.


GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt6.1.7601)

of 2009-11-03 on LENNART-69DE564 (patched)

Copyright (C) 2009 Free Software Foundation, Inc.


GNU gdb (GDB) 7.4

Copyright (C) 2012 Free Software Foundation, Inc.


Running win7, 64b.

When I use gdb, to debug a C++ program with simple printf, I get a seemingly random, but often huge, number of spaces before or after the text of the printf.

Has anyone else seen this? It makes using gdb very difficult to use.

If I run the program from the msys shell, no spaces.

Oddly enough, I have used mingw, msys and emacscw32 in the past without this happening. I think it was at least a 1.5 years ago when last used, so when I ran into the problem, I went and re-installed the whole set. But no difference.

I did add the patch to gdb-mi.el for the breakpoint filter problem. However, that did not affect the printf problem (not that it likely would, since the output problem occurs with no breakpoints – just a straight program run).


(btw, I’m not on the list, so please cc me on any greatly appreciated help!!)
