v2013.04 - PetaLinux - GDB Server Segmentation Fault when Debugging SP605 Reference Design

Description

When debugging the SP605 reference design, the GDB server crashes.  Why?

Solution

This issue is related to how multithreaded debugging is handled. If debugging a thread and it runs very fast in a small loop, the GDB server can segfault and hang.  To work around this, either make the loop larger or ensure that it executes more slowly.
