I sent you my comment last week, but I neglected to copy it to the list.

  Mad testing on native i686-pc-linux-gnu says that this is okay.

  Recommended for approval.

  The usual configuration matrix:

    target    => native
    host      => i686-pc-linux-gnu
    osversion => red-hat-8.0
    gdb       => HEAD%20030107
    gcc       => 2.95.3, 3.2-7-rh, 3.2.1, gcc-3_2-branch%20030107, gcc-3_3-branch%20030107, HEAD%20030107
    binutils  =>,, HEAD%20030107
    libc      => 2.2.93-5-rh
    gformat   => dwarf-2, stabs+
    count        32 = 1 * 1 * 1 * 2 * (5*3+1*1) * 1 * 2

  I did this twice, once with TCL 8.4.1 + Expect 5.38.0 + Dejagnu 1.4.3,
  and once with sourceware cvs TCL+Expect+Dejagnu ('T-E-D').  I did
  before-and-after on each of those pairs, for a total of 128 test runs.
  There were no significant before-and-after differences.

  Good thing computers don't get bored ('Another nested for loop!  Oh boy!').

  There is one significant difference between FSF T+E+D and
  sourceware T+E+D.  With sourceware T+E+D, gdb often FAILs here:

    (gdb) PASS: gdb.threads/pthreads.exp: set break at common_routine in thread 2
    Cannot find thread 8192: generic error^M
    (gdb) FAIL: gdb.threads/pthreads.exp: continue to bkpt at common_routine in thread 2

  With FSF T+E+D, this test always PASSes.  It's probably some difference
  in the Expect versions and ^C handling or thread handling.  In any case,
  this is a separate issue from the gdb_test_multiple patch, I'm just
  throwing it into the knowledge heap.
