I've come across an issue regarding the Green Arrow display when a breakpoint is hit, with respect to DDD & JDK6/JDB.

I am currently running Ubuntu 8.10 with:
 - sun-java6-jre
 - sun-java6-jdk
 - sun-java6-bin
 - ddd 3.3.11

The version output from the JDB was:
 "This is jdb version 1.6 (J2SE version 1.6.0_10)"

After compiling a sample 'Hello, World' application (see attached) and then running it through DDD:
 - java6 -g Main.java
 - ddd --jdb Main
...The DDD window opens successfully with a display of the source code in question. I'm able to set a breakpoint (the Red Stop sign glyph was visible and was confirmed on the jdb output pane) and also hit it once the application is run.

However, the arrow indicator is not visible once the line of code is reached.

I attempted to install the OpenJDK 6 to see if it might offer different behavior, but it didn't. Both packages seemed to make no difference.

It seems like a DDD bug, but I can't rule out that I'm not doing something very stupid (though I've looked it over 5 times)'
