Package: clang-3.5
Version: 1:3.5-9
Severity: important
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

there is a problem in clang-3.5 which leads to generation of invalid debug data.
This makes gdb hang.

The problem is described in http://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=22356 and the trunk
has been patched already.

Since this makes debugging using a graphical IDE practically impossible, I chose severity "important".
