I can't tell whether the patch would work for 'class X: public Y ...'

It will. I really should have appended my working examples, but decided not too. I know better next time ;)

Also, here is an earlier thread on the same subject:

I've nothing really to add to what Tom already mentioned. But as printer selection criteria for a value is now pretty much deferred to the printers themselves, the circumstances discussed in that thread changed. In this case it was just easier to add a last-chance effort in the c++ class GDB printer itself. You can always write a base-class test which is more specialized in the Python printer by mining the fields for base classes.
