To forestall confusion...

This has already been investigated and corrected.  The GDB manual
used to have "A Sample GDB Session" marked Invariant, and the
stabs manual which accompanied it had "Stabs Types" and "Stabs Sections"
marked Invariant.  This was brought to the FSF's attention (including
yours, I thought!) during our previous round of discussion about
the GFDL, and was corrected soon afterward.
