The gdb/mi quoting mechanism is messed up (see http://www.cygwin.com/ml/gdb/2006-02/msg00283.html for
details). A side affect of this is that if we try and set a line breakpoint with an absolute path with
embedded spaces, the command fails. So we check for embedded spaces and send a path relative to the
project basedir or source directory in this case.
The problem is that this isn't always unique and can cause a breakpoint in one project to stop another
project. If I have 2 projects ("/tmp/Spaced Out/Args_1" and "/tmp/Spaced_out/Args_2") and set a line
breakpoint in Args_1 at the 1st printf, the bp command will set the bp at "src/args.c:9". If I then
debug Args_2, I'll stop at line 9 because src/args.c:9 is ambiguous.
I tried *many* different escapes by hand to see if I could figure out a correct syntax and never got
one to work. Its possible it can be done, but not clear what that syntax would be.
This issue is a corner case of IZ #149603 (Debugger confuses source files with the same name). I'm
closing that as fixed and opening this.
Right after filing this I thought of a probable solution. While I can't set a bp with an
absolute path in gdb/mi2, I can check the response (which contains the full path of the
file the bp was applied to) against the full original path. If they're not the same, I got
a bp in a different file. In that case, I can -break-delete and mark the bp as BP_VALIDATION_FAILED.
Fixed while my idea was fresh in my mind:-)

To fix this issue in a NB65 patch you need to apply http://hg.netbeans.org/main?cmd=changeset;node=79fff0b61390
(from 149603) before http://hg.netbeans.org/main?cmd=changeset;node=1bb3be2653b4.
verified in build 200811200201
The fix was ported into release65_fixes.
The issue has been rolled back from the 65patch1 and moved to 65patch2 based on the QE request.
it impossible to apply mentioned changeset(s) to release65_fixes [ref1] branch because a lot of non-this IZ related
changes were made and other changesets pushed into main [ref2] repository between release65_fixes branching time and
mentioned changeset(s) pushing time. Please provide cumulative changeset/ set of changesets applicable to
release65_fixes branch otherwise this fix will be skipped for current NB65 patch.
This problem is common for following IZs: 151761, 151610, 151577, 133134, 155487
It would be nice to have the fix in NB 6.5 patch

I got a related issue in NB 651 (Build 200903060201) on Win XP: When I try to debug into a shared library of the C++
sample project "Subproject Application", e.g. hello3.cc, NB immediately removes the added breakpoint, as the path is
written with different separators:
125-break-insert -f C:/temp/test/SubProjects/hello3lib/hello3.cc:46
So it is very necessary to compare a unified form of the path.
what you describe was fixed in the issue 159525
Yes, it is fixed in NB67 beta (Build 200904242137)
