Yes, I'd like a resolution too. Seems like the last comment was
"Let's let Nick decide". ;-)
FYI, here is what I'm currently proposing for GDB's 6.7 release:

*** Changes since GDB 6.6
+ * Resolved 101 resource leaks, null pointer dereferences, etc. in gdb,
+ bfd, libiberty and opcodes, as revealed by static analysis donated by
+ Coverity, Inc. (http://scan.coverity.com).
* When looking up multiply-defined global symbols, GDB will now prefer the
symbol definition in the current shared library if it was built using the
-Bsymbolic linker option.
