We've recently upgraded to RHEL 5.2 using DDD 3.3.12 and gdb 6.5-37 (both 64 bit).  We're experiencing a few quirks and am looking for suggestions from this group.  I hope someone can help.

1 - When adding break points for the first time after ddd is initialized, the first one will not display in the dialog.   To popup the window to add break points, select Source -> Breakpoints....  Push the Breakpoint  button.  Add your breakpoint function name in the popup dialog.  Push the Set  button.  The breakpoint briefly flashes in the list, and goes away.  Add a second breakpoint, and then they both show up.

2 - When displaying variables in the Data window (pane), all elements of a data structure might not showup.  I had two pointer variables with both pointing to the same address (a FLIGHT data structure).  When I double clicked on each pointer variable, they did not show the exact same elements in the FLIGHT structure.  Doing a print <variable> in the console window, and all structure elements did appear.  The structure variables in the Console window did not exactly match what was displayed in the Data window.  (The Data window is more of a graphic representation, while the Console window is a command line interface.)

3 - When removing all variables from the Data window, the "source code" window flutters and then the Console window resizes to max size and covers the source window.

4 - When debugging X/Motif source, DDD does not regain keyboard focus when hitting a break point.  I suspect this may be more kwin/X related, but am interested in any comments.
