I'm using gdb's new python scripting API, there seems to be some interworking issues with DDD and gdb's python commands, as the commands may take up to minute to complete under ddd. With plain gdb the same commands complete in less than second. Strangely enough, the same commands operate without delays in ddd if I'm analyzing core dumps, so the problem actualizes only with live process debug sessions. Issuing any other than python commands with live process works without any delays, so at least to me this seems to relate only to python commands (both own CLI commands written with python, or running single python commands on gdb command line.
