[lldb-dev] Trouble with 'target modules search-paths...'

Hi All,

I have been experiencing some problems when using the following command:

(lldb) target modules search-paths add . d:/foo

My intent is to set the folder for LLDB to locate any shared object 
files that the gdbremote target may load via dlopen().
After issuing the above command all of the loaded sections in the target 
executable seems to be missing, and I am unable to
find a LoadAddresses for any symbols etc.

I have come across the code below, from "source/Target/Target.cpp at line:1748"

     const PathMappingList &path_list,
     void *baton
     Target *target = (Target *)baton;
     ModuleSP exe_module_sp (target->GetExecutableModule());
     if (exe_module_sp)
         target->SetExecutableModule (exe_module_sp, true);

When I disable this code then everything works as expected for me.

I am wondering what the intent of this code is?
or does anyone have any ideas why I would be seeing such problems?
