Confirmed with dbx version 7.7 on Solaris 10 u8.

In DDD Preferences->General->Automatic Display of Button Hints turn off "as Popup Tips" and "in the Status Line" checkboxes.

This is a bug in gdbTip function parsing the output of dbx command "commands" looking for " run" as a command name. " run" now appears in the command descriptions and parser goes into an infinite loop. Presumably this wasn't the case with earlier versions of dbx.

Fix Attached (diff for 3.3.12)
