Hello all,
 Thanks for replying back, figured out (offcourse had to search in net) that 
'gdb' version I had was 6.7.1 (OS Ubuntu 12.04 LST), not sure how I got this. 
Then I upgraded gdb to version 7.4-2012.04 and things got going.

There is just no line 396 known to gdb.  It seems like you are
indicating a function header.  That's not code.  Either take the
function _name_ rather than a line number (that's usually most reliable)
or take the first line of actual code.
