Bug reports are here:


It's the same system as for llvm, just specify lldb as the product.

This is the first LLDB of all that I tried out, which let me single step into the code, so I am already quite happy with it. In the moment, I see only one minor issue left to be resolved, namely UTF8 strings are not displayed correctly in the ncurses-GUI mode, while in cli mode I see no issue.
