Because KMDI (the underlying library for that ui mode) is totally
broken. Check out the Simple IDEAl mode, it doesn't have all features of
IDEAl, but is much less broken.

If this doesn't work, its probably also KMDI.

:) I suggest to send the debugger problems to kdevelop-devel. Not all
developers read this list.

Please add the gdb version and the output from kdevelop to your mail.
Try to reduce the amount of output by running kdebugdialog and deselect
all, except kdevelop (debugger)

There's an anouncement on for new releases. The next
release will be 3.4rc2. Its going to be tagged wednesday, tarball
release depends on the speed of KDE ftp maintainers.


You will have long and healthy life.
