Actually, turns out this is a preexisting problem.

GDB is not expecting to find more than one location for a catchpoint
backed by breakpoints.  But it is now finding two locations.
The breakpoint is set at "__cxa_begin_catch", and if we do that manually,
we see what are those locations:

(top-gdb) b __cxa_begin_catch
Breakpoint 5 at 0xb126c0 (2 locations)
(top-gdb) info breakpoints 
Num     Type           Disp Enb Address            What
1       breakpoint     keep y   <MULTIPLE>         
1.1                         y   0x0000000000b126c0 <__cxa_begin_catch>
1.2                         y   0x00007ffff2f4ddb0 in __cxxabiv1::__cxa_begin_catch(void*) at ../../../../libstdc++-v3/libsupc++/

Looks like a regression caused by the -qualified stuff.
I guess we want a breakpoint at <__cxa_begin_catch> only.
Should be easy to fix.

But I also suggest that "info breakpoints" shouldn't be showing any
address for "catch catch" breakpoints (and catch throw, etc.).
It's an implementation detail that these catchpoints are implemented
as magic breakpoints.
