Subject: Re:  breakpoint do not work if there are 2 files with the same name

project is Automake-based C++, imported from pre-existing automake/autoconf 

i set a break point in my  lib2/data.cpp, 
and when i start debugging, the GDB prints the following:

(gdb) break data.cpp:541
No line 541 in file "data.cpp" 

the file lib1/data.cpp has only 155 lines

actually -- i could not find a way to reffer to lib1/data.cpp in gdb command 
line -- my temprorary workaround is to set breakpoints on the method calls
(it is easy to do in ddd, since it has command-line-auto-completion :-), but 
its source browser does not display subdirs -- i have only one data.cpp there 
:-) ) 

note: my project does not have src directory, like new automake-based project 
creates, and all the necesary automake stuff was created using simply 
'automake -a -c' and 'libtoolize -c'  -- i.e. not what new automake-based 
project offers. 

the project directory tree looks like the following 

./  -- only auto* stuff, kdevelop project file and makefiles 
./lib1 -- contains sources of lib1.a 
./lib2 -- contains sources of lib2.a
./lib2/sublib1  -- contains sources of libsublib1.a
./progname -- contatins sources of progname binary, 
                        plus it links with  .a libs listed above.  

and,  my gdb is version 5.3, my linux is SuSE 8.2
