time. In the meantime, I've been hacking on a gdb patch to add a third
setting to auto-solib-add meaning "load symbols as lazily as possible".
I'll post a cut at that here once it's in better shape.
What command gdb executing at this point?
My impression was that we had hit a shared library event (Mozilla
plugins are DSOs, so there's lots of these!).
Still passes make check, still shaves six seconds (thirty percent or
so) off of "file mozilla-bin; run; exit". Still correctly sets the
longjmp breakpoint once libc has been loaded; I checked that by hand.
