Package: kdevelop
Version: 1.2
Severity: normal

Bugreport ID : 10:52,05.05.00

Originator	: Craig Graham
E-Mail		: c_graham at hinge.mistral.co.uk

Subject : Watched pointer variables

Error Class	: software bug
Error Location	: debugger
Priority	: low
Bug Description ---------------------------

Set a watch on a pointer variable - expanding the variable will
not de-reference the pointer. 

This fault doesn't occur in the main context-local variables view, only
in the watch view.

How to repeat the error -------------------

Set a watch on any pointer and click on the expand widget next to it
in the VAR tab.

Bugfix or Workaround ----------------------

To examine the structure it points to you have to set a watch on
"*myPointer", which will then expand correctly.
