conditional breakpoints

    Hi all
    I just compiled ups 3.35-beta5 in Linux ELF. I attempted to put conditional
    breakpoints as described in the BUGS files, i.e, setting a breakpoint above the
    place I need the conditional break, starting the program, and then adding the
    code for the conditional break. When I press ESC ups warns about, for example,
    strcmp appearing more than once. Then when I press Cont it warns "Indirect call
    failed in breakpoint code" and the debugee dies with SIGSEV. If instead I step
    through the program this warning is printed every time the breakpoint code is
    reached. This does not happen with programs which have statically linked
    libraries. The shared libraries I use are from distribution, without debugging
    info. Do they need to be compiled with debugging info? Or perhaps I need to
    start the debugging process in some other way?
     I use libc5 and gcc on Linux 2.0.0.
    Any suggestion appreciated.
