State-Changed-Why:
    I thought I responded to this, but maybe that was on the mailing list. Anyway, the trick is to disable Insight's IPC option. It is really quite unnerving to me that this was implemented that way, but it was. I don't consider it very useful, anyway, so I never even noticed the problem. Change Preferences->Advanced...->IPC Support and disable it. Alternative to change it for everyone (by default -- users with a preference file will still need to disable it manually), edit $INSTALLDIR/share/insight1.0/prefs.tcl and change the setting on the line that starts "pref define gdb/ipc/enabled" to "0".

>Organization:
>Environment:
GNU/Linux on x86. I have tested this issue under Debian31/Ubuntu5.04/CentOS4.1/CentOS4.2. This should be a common issue.
>Description:
If 2 persons login to one Linux host and both debug with a insight, they will impact each other. 
For instance, one person close his insight, other insight instances are closed, too. One person issue "step over", others also step over. very stange.

2 insight instance in 2 vnc sessions in the same machine will also have this behaviour. More stange is that 2 insight spawned by same person always work fine.

I have tested with gdb6.4, it works well. "step over" does not impact each other.
Insight 6.1 does not have this issue. and I have not found insight 6.2 & 6.3 to test.
>How-To-Repeat:
2 persons login to one Linux host and both start debugging with insight.

Please contact me if you can not reproduce it. This is really a critical issue.
