I had a problem in porting some Linux multi-threaded applications (using 
to FreeBSD 5.4 some months back. Although gcc compiles them ok, but 
through the
course of debugging, the threads behaves weirdly and gdb couldn't debug 
those threads.

Has the new FreeBSD 6.0 resolved this issue? I read the errata and 
release notes, couldn't
found the details I need, but I saw in the release notes that the kernel 
debugger has improved.
Not sure if this is the same thing that caused my problem.

Best regards,
