How to map thread ids from gpm to pthread ids

How to map thread ids from gpm to pthread ids


I'm currently debugging a process hang using
gpm. When I connect to the process and list its threads with the gpm process thread window, I get a list of thread ids. I'm need to map these thread ids to the thread ids inside the process as reported by pthread_self().

For this particular issue gdb cannot be used to examine the process because gdb hangs when attempting to connect to the process in the hung state, so I dump my own stack from inside the process using
U_STACK_TRACE() for each thread and report its thread id with pthread_self(). These numbers do not match.
