The name gdb-7.4.50-0.20120120 it suggests a snapshot with performance
regression later already fixed on trunk by Tom Tromey. This performance
regression was not present in 7.4 and it will not be present in 7.5.
I have fixed this regression by a backport in 18.104.22.16820120-35.fc17,
the 20120120 snapshot date may suggest your GDB is somehow Fedora derived.
FYI: remove extraneous block from dw2_map_symtabs_matching_filename
FYI: fix some performance bugs with .gdb_index
