I start working with R and I have tried to debug R on a Windows XP system. Unfortunately I am not able to set a breakpoint in the package SJava, which I am interested in.
So far I succeed to compile R with the "DEBUG=T" option, and followed the hints given in the manual/FAQs about debugging. After starting the gdb, I also succeed with

> break WinMain
> run

so that the program stops there. The debugger is also able to find und list the function "R_ReadConsole", but the command

> break R_ReadConsole

is replied:

"Cannot access memory at address 0x1e6a0"

Can anybody give a hint how to continue?

My motivation is to use the SJava package and to continue the work Jens Oehlschlaegel and Ingo von Otte started with.

Thanks for your help!
