when issuing a next or step after main() function's return statement, gdb drops to __libc_start_main() from libc on x86 (or generic_start_main() on ppc and so on, depending on the arch if I'm not mistaken). Is it considered a bug or it's just the expected behavior?
Does the "ending-run.exp" test case pass or fail on this system?
