It seems one must compile with -DHAVE_SUNDBX to get threads with dbx. This is not documented in the INSTALL build instructions but is mentioned in the NEWS file.

(It looks like I failed to say I was using ddd on Solaris 10 in my original submission.)

The following fixes the stack problem in 3.3.12-rc1:

      • ddd/SourceView.C.orig Thu Jan 22 17:06:14 2009

--- ddd/SourceView.C Thu Jan 22 12:59:06 2009

--- 7150,7157 ----
continue; // Skip empty lines
if (frame.contains("Reading ", 0))
continue; // Skip GDB `Reading in symbols' messages
+ if (frame.contains("current thread: ", 0))
+ continue; // Skip DBX `current thread' messages

frames += frame;

Using dbx as the debugger ddd does not highlight the threads option in the Status pulldown. After displaying threads in the dbx command window I can switch between threads there. However, the Backtrace window is then skewed by one frame because "current thread: t@xx" is displayed at the bottom
