GDB infinite loop when stepping on "while (1) i++;"

Dears, problems are here:

gcc -o t -gdwarf-2 tp_while1.c
gdb t
(gdb) b main
Breakpoint 1 at 0x8048350: file tp_while1.c, line 3.
(gdb) r
Starting program: /home/qinwei/GJ283/code/build_linux/debug-gdb/t 

Breakpoint 1, main () at tp_while1.c:3
3         int i = 10;
(gdb) n
4         while (1) i++;
(gdb) n

When program stops at "while (1) i++;", and printing "next" command will 
cause gdb infinite loop. 
The target are x86, score, or other? (gdb-6.6 release version)

Is the reason that the following dwarf-2 info:

  "Special opcode 104: advance Address by 7 to 0x8048357 and Line by 1 to 
  "Advance PC by 7 to 804835e"

which makes "while (1)" and "i++;" the same line number? And gdb will get
"stop_pc" from the range [0x8048357, 0x804835e] and will not stop?
How to solve it?  Thanks!

int main (void)
  int i = 10; 
  while (1) i++;
  return 0;

 Line Number Statements:
  Extended opcode 2: set Address to 0x8048334
  Special opcode 6: advance Address by 0 to 0x8048334 and Line by 1 to 2
  Advance PC by constant 17 to 0x8048345
  Special opcode 160: advance Address by 11 to 0x8048350 and Line by 1 to 
  Special opcode 104: advance Address by 7 to 0x8048357 and Line by 1 to 4
  Advance PC by 7 to 804835e 
  Extended opcode 1: End of Sequence
