Don't worry, that's what I'm here for ;-)

The GDB manual uses @kindex to put all the GDB commands into a
separate index, while @cindex entries go into the Concept Index.
Right now, this line near the beginning of gdb.texinfo:

    @syncodeindex ky cp

causes the @kindex entries to be printed together with the @cindex
entries.  But it is enough to remove that line to cause them to be in
2 different indices.

So whenever you want to add an index entry for a command, please
always put it into @kindex.

As I said earlier, I'd really prefer that you say "Windows
applications" or "native Windows debugging", instead of using

Otherwise, this can go in, as far as I'm concerned.
