i could have argued this more concisely,
what I mean is that 'break' is not related to the current language,
but the language which we want to be the current language
when the breakpoint is hit.  and so 'set language' to use language
specific breakpoints is arguably wrong because the current language
may not be the language of the breakpoint we want set.

doesn't seem as though reading language symfiles frobs the current
language afaict.
attached should fix GDB's pre-DW_LANG_ObjC, tested it with stabs,
don't have an old
enough compiler to test the others easily though.

attached calls set_language_has_cu_loaded when calling
except for the symtab case, i dont think we need it there since we
should already have called it
when making psytmabs.  Thanks for the pointer.

for some reason i installed gnat/libgnat-devel but still not getting
ada testsuite :/
i'll get started looking at the new failures.
