I've had this experience on other computers (Sol8 + gcc2.95.2 + gdb4.18)
but ddd, for some reason, worked fine on solaris. With my i386-current
setup, ddd and gdb don't behave well with pthreads. Single stepping, for
example, just takes me straight to a core dump that shouldn't happen for
at least 20-30 steps.

Examining the core dump reveals nearly nothing.

Just FYI.
