Re: PATCH to avoid infinite loop in cplus-dem.c on some EDG names

Thanks --- i wasn't completely sure where was appropriate.  I've sent
another copy there.

I've used gcc 4.18 with that compiler for quite a while.
It doesn't really understand the C++ stuff, but it works well enough
to be useful.  With gdb 5, though, i started seeing this problem
with gdb sometimes getting stuck reading in EDG symbols.
(Actually, i first reported this in sept. 99 in reference to the SGI C++
compiler; i didn't send a patch at that point though).  KAI now has their
own set of patches to gdb 5, but it would be nice to be able to do something
useful with the standard version.  (Plus, i saw this problem occur once
even in their patched version.)
