 i had almost exactly these symptoms, and the problem was fixed for me by 
 (gdb) set solib-absolute-prefix /        
 ... into the command line window in insight.
 The apparent 'step' and 'next' inactivity is due to gdb not being able 
 to set breakpoints for the step/next behaviours.
 Not being able to get paths to libraries seems to affect gdb's ablity to 
 set breakpoints.
 The solib-adbsolute-prefix variable is set at configure time for both 
 gdb and insight, and the defaults i have in my debian [sarge 3.1] are..
 gdb [gdb 6.3-debian] has the default : ""
 insight [GNU gdb 2004-08-11-cvs] has the default : "/usr/share".
 when I set the value to "/usr/share" in gdb, it has exactly the same 
 broken behaviour with 'next' and 'step'.
 I guess this is down to the distribution to get the config right, so 
 I've sent this to bugs at debian:
 nice debugger though :)
