I have this GDB TUI/layout on. How to return to default GDB view? I can't just restart GDB because I have important backtrace on my hand and as long as I have these extra windows I can't scroll well on the basic view.

  • C-x C-a
  • C-x a

But see sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=15163, which is a fun gotcha for the vi-inclined. –  Rhys Ulerich Feb 20 '13 at 16:54
