Package: emacs24
Version: 24.3+1-2
Severity: critical

Dear Maintainer,

- run emacs
- start program with gud
- enter breakpoint / stop programm
- use bt to get a backtrace
the backtrace appears, but no prompt is shown afterwards, as as if the command 
wasn't finished yet.

GUD should show a prompt after outputting the command output

Heres a transscript:

(gdb) <- thats the prompt indicating GUD is waiting for input

  C-c C-cQuit <- pressed Ctrl+c Ctrl+c it prints 'Quit', but it should simply 
output the prompt in the next line instead.
bt <- ok, now we wanrt to see a backtrace...
#0  0x00007ffff590a49d in nanosleep () at ../sysdeps/unix/syscall-template.S:81
#1  0x00007ffff5932f44 in usleep (useconds=<optimized out>) at 
#2  0x0000000000449df5 in go_threading () at threads.c:177
#3  0x0000000000421609 in main (argc=1, argv=0x7fffffffec18) at 
server_main.c:329<- now the backtrace is finished, we should see a prompt in 
the next line to indicate this, but nothing.
frame 2<- walking the stack should open the c-file
#2  0x0000000000449df5 in go_threading () at threads.c:177
177                     usleep(1000000);<- but it simply stops like that, 
without opening the source and moving the cursor to that position; again no 
print EventQShuttingDown<- now we want to see a variable, it should print it, 
and show the prompt again, but...
print EventQShuttingDown<- neither done, prompt nor variable. Next try, better 
$2 = 0<- it prints the variable, but again no prompt.

=> GUD-MI is next to useless and rather to be considered alpha quality
Attempts to report bugs with upstream have failed to produce any feedback.

maintainer, please consider to downgrade to the GUD from emacs 23 and maybe 
forward the above bug again.
