Xml parsing exception on relative path with Eclipse gdb DSF debug

I’m using Eclipse Mars, with gdb 7.2
While trying to run a Debug Configuration, using gdb, I’m getting a parse exception.

The exception states: “Fatal error during XML Parsing: unable to open /path/to/file.xml”

But upon looking at the path in the code, it should be ../../../../path/to/file.xml.

I imagine that something is wrong with my gdb setup in Eclipse, but I’m not sure what. I’ve tried many different things, none of which seem to work.

I imagine that this has something to do with relative paths not being recognized by gdb, or the working path being different in Eclipse vs gdb.

Does anyone have an idea what is wrong?
