Thanks for the reply. I will use the kill command and see what
happens. There are several additional jobs in the queue that
will presumably start when the kill command is issued.
I will not delete the show. And, I will requeue the flagging job,
or at least I will TRY to requeue it. I have never requeued a job,
so I will have to poke thru the menus to find out how to do that.
About gdb, sorry - I am not familiar with it. But still, I am willing
to try to help if there is some Help For gdb available. Also, you
can have a copy of the show, if there is no other way to find out
what is happening.
