For me the repro steps are simple. Install Kubuntu 14.04, install Qt Creator, set breakpoint, run debugger. When breakpoint is hit, debugger terminates and app continues to run disconnected from the debugger. Debug log says the debugger has exceeded virtual memory, is "ILL", and closes out.
Cause is an unreasonably large size is being passed into GDB on readMemory call. The offending item is a ::staticMetaObject.
The patch described in this blog post seemingly mitigates the crash, so I can get back to coding:
But obviously, not a very good "solution"!
