branch which is not yet in gdb. Specifically, when pretty-printing we
reconstruct a "struct value" from the arguments to val_print; in this
case the address being 0 causes problems later when trying to take the
address of an object -- gdb complains that it does not have an

Ok, I will check it in. Thanks for clarifying this.
And yeah, I'm trying to flush out the various independent bug fixes
and changes from the python branch. I am trying to set the stage to
