Ah, thanks for the clarification. I am running GDB 18.104.22.16870418-git and
find my settings to be like this:
(rr) show target-async
Whether MI is in asynchronous mode is off.
(rr) maint show target-async
Controlling the inferior in asynchronous mode is on
The docs for non-stop mode also tell that pagination interferes with non-stop
mode and I have recently turned pagination off, making non-stop mode
Not sure about the difference between the "show target-async" and "maint show
target-async", but if none is required to be set for rr, I will just turn
them off in my own .gdbinit
The gdbinit provided by "rr gdbinit" just made me think that target-async is
something important for rr, since it is only disabled for certain versions.
