The above gdb/mi log stream message is written by the statement
"exception_print (gdb_stderr, e)" in create_breakpoint().

The function mi_interpreter_init() creates the mi output streams:

  /* Create MI channels */
  mi->out = mi_console_file_new (raw_stdout, "~", '"');
  mi->err = mi_console_file_new (raw_stdout, "&", '"');
  mi->log = mi->err;

The function mi_interpreter_resume() maps the gdb streams to the mi

  gdb_stdout = mi->out;
  /* Route error and log output through the MI */
  gdb_stderr = mi->err;
  gdb_stdlog = mi->log;

Since mi->err and mi->log are the same stream, it seems that gdb/mi
writes gdb_stdlog debugging messages and gdb_stderr error messages to
the same stream, which would explain this problem.
