I did a test spin and it came out with no significant problems,
just one irritating glitch that I haven't tracked down.
I tested with:
#1 stock dejagnu
#2 stock dejagnu + gdb_test_multiple
#3 sourceware dejagnu + gdb_test_multiple
"stock dejagnu" means tcl, expect, and dejagnu built from their primary
"sourceware dejagnu" means tcl, expect, and dejagnu from the
sources.redhat.com cvs repository, module dejagnu
#1 versus #2 came out perfectly.
#2 versus #3 came out with a difference in gdb.threads/pthreads.exp
(#2 is consisently good, #3 has intermittent failures). Chances
are about 0.5% that it's an issue with the gdb_test_multiple patch.
I blew it and did not do a spin with "sourceware dejagnu" before
applying the patch and I've applied other stuff to my test bed

I'd like to do another test spin on the new version before you commit
it if that's all right with you. I can do a cut-down version but I'd
like to be really sure about sourceware dejagnu because the damn things
are subtly different, and I normally don't test with it.
