I was so tired last night that all I could post was the raw numbers.

Column #2 is gcc CVS version plus a gdb that *includes* Daniel Berlin's
patch to fix demangler compatibility. This shows that gdb has other
v3 abi problems besides the changes induced by the demangler.
I don't know what those problems are. It requires someone to roll
up their sleeves and analyze gdb.log files. I have time to do one
of these per week. I'm working in order of "most FAILs first" and
I'm on cplusfuncs.exp.

I respectfully disagree. I think gdb 5.1 needs to be ready for gcc 3.0.
