This question seems more relevant here than SO. I've been trying to debug a library that X uses through a GDB session that I'm running through SSH, but it seems that on OpenSUSE, the SSH session is being "suspended" before GDB hits a breakpoint that occurs in the library on suspend. As a result, the system waits on the remote GDB to continue, but I can't continue because the SSH session is "suspended".

I noticed on Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10, the GDB session stops while the SSH connection is still active, so I can continue on the breakpoint and continue on the SIGUSR1 signal that GDB gets. Is it possible to mimic this behaviour on SUSE and "reverse" the order of suspends?

I found the difference between the two distros. I removed /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/50rcnetwork, and now the SSH session suspends after GDB gets the SIGUSR1 signal.
