Yeah, that's what I was afraid of.
This is a bug in GDB. There is no plausible reason to want to print
the function using one language, and its arguments in a different
language. Some piece of code is using current-language when it
shouldn't. Could you track this down, and see where the inappropriate
switch from C to Pascal occurs?
I haven't actually looked at the code yet, though, so I don't know how
easy it will be to fix. I have the feeling that C and C++ are sharing
code in some ungodly fashion which will make this difficult to fix.

I understand. But in situations like this it's important to fix the
real bug, instead of kludging around it.
