9.1i EDK - XMD fails watchpoint write break on MB


When running XMD in 9.1i EDK, I cannot set a watchpoint write break using the correct set of commands; break is not set as shown below: 


"XMD% watch w 0x27000000 

XMD% bpl 

Breakpoint/Watchpoint NOT Set 

XMD% con 

Info:Processor started. Type "stop" to stop processor 

RUNNING> XMD% exit" 


When is this problem going to be fixed, and is there a work-around?


To work around this issue, set the watchpoints from the GDB interface. 


This problem has been fixed in the latest EDK 9.1i Service Pack, available at: 

The first service pack containing the fix is EDK 9.1i Service Pack 1.
