I'm debugging a multithreaded program using GDB. Various threads are created and exit during execution. GDB copes successfully with the multiple threads (e.g. 'thread apply 3 bt' reports successfully backtrace of thread 3), but then at one point loses control of the program:
[New Thread 0x41401940 (LWP 13370)]
[Thread 0x40a00940 (LWP 13333) exited]
[New Thread 0x41e02940 (LWP 13371)]
[New Thread 0x45a08940 (LWP 13377)]
[New Thread 0x46409940 (LWP 13378)]
[Thread 0x41e02940 (LWP 13371) exited]
[Switching to Thread 0x45a08940 (LWP 13377)]
Cannot remove breakpoints because program is no longer writable.
Further execution is probably impossible.
0x00002aaaab98348f in start_thread () from /lib64/libpthread.so.0
ptrace: No such process.
Surprisingly, although debugging is no more possible, the program is not dead:
A debugging session is active.
Inferior 1 [process 13296] will be killed.
Quit anyway? (y or n) y

Your assistance will be appreciated.
