Same here. It didn't regress for me with gcc 3.2-7-rh because
it was already KFAIL'ing with that.

I think the old output is correct and it's just a matter of upgrading
the test script to handle the many variations of 'ptype' output.
Actually we could use some more infrastructure for doing that.
Writing four to six 500-character regexp's for each ptype is
I'll make a "6.0 versus HEAD" regression report a little while after
gdb 6.0 is released.
