PS If project is moved to folder with all Latin chars (like C:\Pascal\Project1\Project1.dpr) then debugging works fine.

Due to 0020835 I can not try with Russian chars. With special chars available to me (such as umlauts) it works.

Please check the GDB version, and ensure you use at least 7.3.2

Please see
and report all the info described there.

Please also ensure you compile Lazarus with debug info, so the trace in the picture will have line info.

When recompiling with extra defines (for the log file), please use the following defines:

Project compiled with debug info. My GDB.exe version is 7.3, I'll try to compare it with now...

Yes, all files of gdb are same.

As I've wrote in first comment, debugger works fine immediately after renaming folder with project to Latin chars, and does not work again after renaming folder back to Russian chars. My Windows is Russian (tested on both Win7 x64 and WinXP x32), so Unicode<->Ansi conversion for Russian chars must give right results in both directions.

Sorry for delay. Just tested in Lazarus 1.2RC2, all work fine now, bug has disappeared ;)

Can be closed, thanks!
