Ticket #10773 (new defect)

Opened 21 months ago

Built in Debugger unusably broken

Reported by: dashxdr Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 4.1.18 Keywords: debugger broken
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

Launch wuth "virtualbox --dbg --startvm win7" where win7 is a virtual machine with windows7 installed. Turn on the debug window. Type "stop" and yes, the system freezes, I can view registers and see where the CPU is.

But nothing related to flow of execution works.

't' does not trace. The emulator just starts going again.

Breakpoints do not stop the cpu. Actually it looks like some damage is done when a breakpoint is hit.

'stop' and 'g' are the only commands that work as described.

It's as if the interrupt vectors for trace or breakpoints have not been set.
