gdb and strange kernel stuff :(



Re...

I find that whenever I run gdb to play/debug with a program,
/var/log/messages (as well as my console) becomes filled with things like:

Jan 19 23:38:12 corinne /bsd: pmap_pageable: bad PT page va 10013000 next
f3400328
Jan 19 23:38:12 corinne last message repeated 8 times
Jan 19 23:38:12 corinne /bsd: pmap_pageable: bad PT page va 10011000 next
f3400328
Jan 19 23:38:12 corinne /bsd: pmap_pageable: bad PT page va 10013000 next
f340032

That was for a relatively small (20k) program... on a much larger program
(100-200k executable size)  I would get that same information, except
it would be accompanied with

Jan 19 15:44:12 corinne last message repeated 9974 times

My kernel is about week old with sources from that time. gdb is from the 
2.0 release. Is a simple update in order, or is something much more
serious going on?
