This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the bug-gnu-emacs@HIDDEN mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

With today's repository:

 emacs -Q
 M-x gdb RET C-a C-k gdb --i=mi ../lib-src/oo-spd/i386/ctags.exe RET

In the GUD buffer, type

 (gdb) start --help

This is what I see:

    Current directory is d:/gnu/bzr/emacs/test/lib-src/oo-spd/i386/
    GNU gdb (GDB) 7.1

    Reading symbols from d:/gnu/bzr/emacs/test/lib-src/oo-spd/i386/ctags.exe...done.
    (gdb) start --help
    Temporary breakpoint 1 at 0x408eab: file ctags.c, line 1093.
    The target does not support running in non-stop mode. <<<<<<<<<

Problem #1: Why does it try to start in non-stop mode without checking
first?

Workaround:

    (gdb) set non-stop off

Problem #2: The mode line says "Debugger:run [unknown]".  Why the
"unknown" part?

Problem #3:

    (gdb) q
    A debugging session is active.

	    Inferior 1 [process 5972] will be killed.

    Quit anyway? (y or n) [answered Y; input not from terminal]

So it claims that it got the answer Y, so it was supposed to kill the
inferior, but when I try to exit Emacs with C-x C-c, it says:

  Active process exist; kill them and exit anyway (yes or no)?

and shows me the "*Process List*" buffer with this contents:

    Proc	 Status   Buffer   Command
    ----	 ------   ------   -------
    gdb-inferior run      (Killed) 

None of these problems are visible in Emacs 23.1.96 with the same
version of GDB.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
d:/gnu/bzr/emacs/test/etc/DEBUG.
