"circle" runs fine on its own, but it's a matter of > calling up a game of it. Unless I run the debugger as a background process. You can make use of a feature called 'job control'. Run gdb, and call circle from within it. Then Try using Ctrl-Z to suspend the whole thing, and then have it continue to run (gdb+circle) in the background by typing 'jobs' to find out what job is gdb (probably ) and then 'bg 1' or just 'bg' if its the only job, to run it in the background. Then telnet in, go to the crash, (or wherever you reach a breakpoint) and hit Ctrl-] for telnet command line and suspend telnet and bring gdb to the front with 'fg <job number>'. This is kind of a screwey way to do it, I much prefer Linux's virtual consoles. Hope this helps.
