Could you please run it also on GNU/Linux as some final test?  If you do not
have one available there are various test boxes available at
and similar sites or contact me offlist.  Testsuite on GNU/Linux should IMO
catch most of the possible regressions.

One `make check' should take at most about 20 minutes in worst cases, some
5 minutes should be more normal.  Sure it is being run just as a final test.
Many FAIL results are normal, just regressions are worth a check.

I use
	cd gdb/testsuite
	make site.exp	# needed just once
	runtest runtest gdb.base/start.exp
but probably more correct is to just run:
	cd gdb/testsuite
	make check RUNTESTFLAGS="gdb.base/start.exp"

No problem just please try to follow the spacing/indentation of the code
around despite it looks unusual.

Yes, I agree, it may be even a single problem.

:-)  Some existing GDB code may not follow it but I do not know much of such
places offhand.

(The GNU coding style really was not a primary concern of my mail, feel free
to keep the code parts which you are not sure about the formatting intact.)
