GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (i586-suse-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.0) of 2007-11-23 on

Yes - That's what Google found

The above are what Emacs put in the .emacs file. I didn't edit it directly.

It says:-

Run gdb (like this):
gdb /home/chris/mydata/Projects/SimSoup/simsoup-cpp/simsoup/simsoup 

simsoup is the name of my program. Hitting enter starts gdb, but only in
text mode.

Since my original posting I have found that if I don't load ECB, then
graphical debugging works. However, I would like to be able to use both ECB
and graphical debugging. Any thoughts?
