Sheesh, Eli. Guido asked:

And that's what I answered, especially the second part.

Well, gdb 5.0 was released more than a year before gcc 3.0, and gdb 5.1
was released more than 5 months after gcc 3.0. That's a good reason
to expect that gdb 5.1 will work a lot better than gdb 5.0 when the
target program is compiled with gcc 3.0.3.
I don't have gcc 3.0.3 installed yet (I wish I did). I don't have
djgpp 2.03 installed (I probably never will). And I don't have time
to chase after user bug reports with incomplete source code and gdb 5.0.
