Load time with gdb on windows 7



  • I am using gdb on windows 7, 64 bit. It is obvious that the loading time of a large debug compiled application may take a bit of time to be loaded by gdb. It consumes about 35 seconds, which I consider as acceptable.

    Using QFileDialog::getOpenFileName to open a file for import takes ages compared to this. i have checked in TaskManager andjust loading all the required dlls requires additional 2 min and 50 secs just CPU time for gdborig.exe. This is outrageous! After all this time I have only the dialog open and be able to choose the file to import. Sucking in the 150+ MB including an ASCII interpretation is peanuts afterwards.

    Is that really the case or just my installation?
