Well, you absolutely must run GDB 5.0 or later; most previous versions
(with the possible exception of some of the HJ Lu GDB releases) were
very broken.  GDB snapshots might be better; not sure.

See for example http://sources.redhat.com/ml/gdb/2000-10/msg00008.html
(along with other such messages).

Do you know whether people who are complaining are using older GDB's
or whether they are talking about issues which still aren't fixed?
(or some of each?).
