I've noticed that when enabling GDB pretty printers in QtCreator, and then starting a debugging session, there is a loading icon on the right panel where all the local variables are shown, and stepping over/in doesn't work. When looking into a resource monitor, GDB can be seen taking up a lot of memory, which is increasing. After some time all of the available RAM will be consumed by GDB and the system will hang.
This doesn't happen when pretty printers are disabled, and I can debug juts fine.
Does anyone know why this would happen?
Thank you in advance!
