The thing is that the task ID you are using needs to be valid.
So, basically, you need to use an Ada program that uses tasking,
and the task ID needs to be known at the time the breakpoint is

My favorite little Ada program happens to be available from
gdb.ada/mi_task_arg. Using that program:

    gdb -q task_switch
    (gdb) b break_me
    Breakpoint 1 at 0x403a5a: file /[...]/task_switch.adb, line 57.
    (gdb) run
    Starting program: /[...]/task_switch 
    [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
    Using host libthread_db library "/lib/".
    [New Thread 0x7ffff7852910 (LWP 32425)]
    [New Thread 0x7ffff764e910 (LWP 32426)]
    [Switching to Thread 0x7ffff764e910 (LWP 32426)]

    Breakpoint 1, task_switch.break_me () at /[...]/task_switch.adb:57
    57            null;
    (gdb) info tasks
       ID       TID P-ID Pri State                  Name
        1    645010       48 Child Activation Wait  main_task
        2    645d80    1  48 Accept or Select Term  my_callee
    *   3    649490    1  48 Runnable               my_caller
    (gdb) b task_switch.adb:70 task 1 
    Breakpoint 2 at 0x40365a: file /[...]/task_switch.adb, line 70.

The above works. But if you start using a different casing on
the "task" keyword, as below, the current GDB rejects it:

    (gdb) b task_switch.adb:70 TASK 1
    Junk at end of arguments.
    (gdb) b task_switch.adb:70 Task 1
    Junk at end of arguments.

(note: the "info tasks" command is not necessary for things to work;
 GDB will automatically compute the list of tasks as needed)
