I haven't had time to look further into this.

It's because you've forked, but the dynamic linker has not run yet. This is code I added recently. The first time, we get the name of the dynamic linker from the contents of .interp. Later, after it's run, we get it from the inferior's link_map list.

Maybe a gdbarch hook to override the name of the default dynamic
linker? That's really bizarre though. Maybe the OpenSolaris sources
give some insight to how it came up with /lib/

This "unexpected warning" is also the one that causes the TUI to crash under Solaris.
See the thread "TUI + gdbserver broken?" at url :

Removing that warning (I've tried that as well) will remove that problem too, but it's only a side effect. I think we should fix both separately but when you'll have removed think warning, the TUI bug will become invisible.
