Okay, well, here is something I would appreciate a sanity-check on.

Breakpoints are definitely having a problem on the alpha target.  For the
following simple program:

(gdb) list main
1       int
2       main(int argc, char *argv[])
3       {
4               int a, b, c, d;
6               a = 1;
7               b = 2;
8               c = 3;
9               d = 4;
10              printf("a = %d, b = %d, c = %d, d = %d\n", a, b, c, d);
(gdb) break 9
Breakpoint 1 at 0x120000dbc: file foo.c, line 9.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /var/tmp/a.Breakpoint 1, main (argc=1, argv=0x1fffff4d0) at foo.c:9
9               d = 4;
(gdb) print a
$1 = 1
(gdb) print b
$2 = 2
(gdb) print c
$3 = 3
(gdb) cont
a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 0

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00000000 in ?? ()

If I do not set that breakpoint, then "d" is set properly.  (Yah,
I haven't figured out why it segv's on exit yet, that's pretty cute,

Now, if you look at what happens during a software single-step:

(gdb) break main
Breakpoint 1 at 0x120000d98: file foo.c, line 3.
(gdb) run
Starting program: /var/tmp/a.out 
*** FOUND .interp SECTION

Breakpoint 1, main (argc=-32, argv=0x1) at foo.c:3
3       {
(gdb) stepi
0x120000da0     3       {
0x120000da8     6               a = 1;
0x120000db0     7               b = 2;

Note the PC value is incrementing by 8 each time -- this is wrong, it should
be incrementing by 4.  This, combined with my failure above, leads me to
believe that the PC is not being adjusted properly when the breakpoint is
