Ah, I missed the "you have defined a buffer yourself" part.
So what seems to be happening is that there's another symbol also
called "buffer" in glibc:
(gdb) info symbol buffer
buffer in section .bss of /lib64/libc.so.6
and gdb is picking that symbol instead of yours.
I can reproduce this if I compile a small program without debug info,
but with debug info (-g), it works as you'd expect.
I don't think we have syntax to disambiguate this, like
'libc.so.6'::buffer' vs 'program'::buffer, or program#buffer some
