The consequences of ignoring the break are harmless.

Careful.  The behavour is undefined so there is nothing saying that your 
implementation is correct.

Often a cntrl-c is sent instead of break.  GDB can also NACK partial 
packets.  If you go through enough cases you find gdb can lock up (until 
a timeout).

If you're holding onto the thread you're effectively synchronous.  The 

	<- n<new-thread>
	-> +


	<- T00<new-thread>
	-> +$C#..
	<- +

are, only marginally different.

Should all threads be halted during this exchange?  I think that is a 
separate question.
