Yes, I realized that soon after posting the patch as well :-(

Perhaps a better alternative is to restore the overlay-bp-reset behavior to
"before 2009-05-12" commit: now that this change is in:

  2009-06-16  Paul Pluzhnikov  <>

	* solib.c (symbol_add_stub): New FLAGS parameter.
	(solib_add): Defer breakpoint_re_set until after all solibs.

the 2009-05-12 change (I believe -- I'd need to verify that) should no
