Bug Description

Binary package hint: ddd

Using ddd with gdb, Machine Code Window (View -> Machine Code Window) does not show disassembled code; instead, you can see the message "A syntax error in expression, near `<hex_address>'.

The bug is caused by ddd using the old syntax for gdb command "disassemble", which used to require blank space as a separator between starting and ending address. The new syntax (introduced by a commit from Paul Pluzhnikov on november 23rd, 2009) requires a comma between the two addresses.
This happens on Lucid, with ddd version 1:3.3.11-1ubuntu2 and gdb version 7.1-1ubuntu2
The attached trivial patch restores the correct behaviour.

I don't know why the Bug Watch Updater claims the status is new, it is closed.
