Facing a malformed packet error using Insight debugger

Insightuser
 Hi,
 I am using insight to debug my target mips2.
 If I use the command line debugger provided by montavista, after connecting
 to my target , the resposne is

 $ mips2_fp_le-gdb.exe
GNU gdb 6.6.50.20070301 (MontaVista 6.6.50-2.0.5.0703840 2007-08-23)

This GDB was configured as "--host=i686-pc-cygwin --target=mipsel-montavista-lin
ux-gnu".
 (gdb) set solib-absolute-prefix .
 (gdb) target remote 192.168.12.162:1000
 Remote debugging using 192.168.12.162:1000
 0x2aaa8830 in __start () from ./lib/ld.so.1
 (gdb) c
 
 and this works fine.

If I use the insight gdb, the following problem is faced when the fork() system call is invoked.

$ /cygdrive/c/Insight6.8/tuxbuilder-1.1/mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu/cross/usr/bin/
mipsel-linux-gdb.org.exe ./philips/apps/amApp

(gdb)

please let me know How do I solve the malformed packet error.
