Debugger searches symbols in same object file first
When trying to print the value of a global variable in C mode, the debugger has been enhanced to first search for that variable within the same object file. For instance, when debugging a function inside a shared library, the debugger will first search for global variables in that shared library, and then expand the search to other all other object files if no match was found. When two global variables are defined with the same name, this allows the debugger to select the one most likely meant by the user.
