So if it is a bug in GDB, maybe Sam's suggestion to filter it out is a good idea (less confusion for the user), since user perception is an dangerous thing. If you tell clients well, it 's complaining but it works fine, they don't trust you. ;-)

Lieven, it is not a bug. The debugger is telling you that there is no such file in codeblocks.exe and adds a pending breakpoint. When the DLL that contains that file loads, it will tell you it found it (resolved).
There is no confusion for the user here. It tells you it can't find it and on the next line it tells you it has been added as "pending".

I'm getting kind of lost in this discussion, but here is the debug log that I'm getting (BTW I do have GDB 6.3):

You 're using RC2 or earlier. The debugger has been greatly improved since then...
Be patient!
This bug will be fixed soon...

You need to use GDB 6.3 instead of 5.x
Question: GDB 6.3 is not supported on Windows 98.  Is there any way to fully support both, perhaps, or do a system-dependent check, or maybe even just check the executable or its output, so that Windows 98 users are not left weeping in the dust?
Or failing that...does anyone know where you can get that psapi.dll file that 98 doesn't have?
(Or am I misunderstanding, and we should just leave it at saying that some minor features are unsupported by 98?)

Sorry to be ignorant, but I don't know what RC2 means.  What do I need to do to allow me to debug my project?

RC2 : this is release candidate 2, the last offical released version of Cb at the 25th october 2005.
But code has been changed since that day, no official release yet, you can get the code out of the svnrepository and build it yourself. That code contains much bug fixes, new features, improvements.

Or you could search the forum for unofficial SVN builds. A couple of people are providing binary snapshots of the SVN version...
Be patient!

Therion and Ceniza provide C::B SVN binary snapshots for windows. You can also look at this post to know when a new binary snapshot would be available.

Finally, GDB 6.3.2 has been released, and it does support win98.

This is a good new :). It means that it would be possible (AFAIK) to provide an ANSI build of C::B for Win98.
