FC6 Linux 2.6.20-1.2952.fc6 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I'v posted the insight/315 bug concerning cygwin and the quit. I tried the same file (mydbg.c) on FC6 and found out that the variable balloons option is causing insight to crash.
I have insight compiled and installed in /opt/dummy/usr/bin and I put that at the forefront of the PATH variable
gcc -g -o mydbg mydbg.c
export PATH=/opt/dummy/usr/bin:$PATH
insight ./mydbg
Ctrl-N (for the gdb console)
b 13
r hello world
*move the mouse on any variables (like argc or anything) and it would immediatly seg fault.

The cause of this problem seems to be the Variable Balloons option.

Preferences -> Sources ...
Variable Balloons "Off"

But other problems still exist and it's trying to blame gdb for them. like when you try to add argc to the watchlist. it will give this error
varobj.c:1471: internal-error: my_value_equal: Assertion `!value_lazy (val1)' failed.
A problem internal to GDB has been detected, further debugging may prove unreliable.
Quit this debugging session?
Yes No
pressing No is useless, the same window just keeps popping up right back at you.

    If you are seeing messages like "A problem internal to GDB has been detected..." it is no lie. This is a message from GDB's varobj system. I know there's been quite a bit of churn in this area in the weeks surrounding the release. Your best bet is to try and isolate this in the console and report it to gdb.
    FWIW, I am not seeing this with CVS HEAD right now. [Although I am seeing a lot of DWARF warnings...]
