I found that during my testing of gdbserver and signals that I was not
actually varying the gdbserver used on the target. I was always using
gdbserver-6.5 and never gdbserver-6.6. When I actually did use
gdbserver-6.6 or gdbserver-184.108.40.20670306-cvs, I get the following from

From other mailing list threads that I had read this seem to imply that
there was some mismatch between my target's libpthread.so and
libthread_db.so and the one in my host's solib-absolute-prefix. I found
that the two sets matched. Further, if I rebuild gdbserver-6.5 and use
the rebuilt gdbserver-6.5, it once again works.
