It's a bit of a wild guess, but is it possible that you (or one of the
libraries you use) are doing anything with signals (SIGALRM or such?). I
think I remember looking at the code handling the server-side ignored
signal handling and thinking that it could go wrong if you get a signal
while doing a instruction-step. I am not sure it fully applies here as the
last command that lldb client did was a "continue", but i think it has to
have something to do with signals, as you end up stopped in a signal
Could you try the following sequence of commands?
(lldb) process launch --stop-at-entry-point
(lldb) process handle --notify true --stop true #Stop on all signals
and let us know if you see any extra stops due to signals. If that doesn't
find anything then I think we'll have start pulling logs from the
lldb-server side, as there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the
client. The easiest way to achieve that is to do a
export LLDB_SERVER_LOG_CHANNELS="posix all:gdb-remote packets"
before launching lldb.

Both cases stop on signal 5.

The stopping case is missing the equivalent of "Element 1: Single stepping
past breakpoint site 2 at 0x2aaaaaab9eb0” which is in the continuing case.
I’ve attached the file here:

step over the breakpoint. But it looks like we got a signal while
single-stepping, but the stop reason was misreported by somebody.
