Hi Tom,

It seems like this failure is reproducible using "make check-read1".  If you haven't
seen that before, check it out in gdb/testsuite/README, I'm sure you'll find dozens
of other testsuite bugs with it :).

As for the issue itself, I guess the root problem is that we're using gdb_test_multiple, which
was meant for the CLI, in an MI setting.  I was afraid that the regexp made to match the various
errors, such as:

  -re "Undefined\[a-z\]* command:.*$gdb_prompt $"

wouldn't work in MI, but the way they are written, they should match this, for example:

  hello
  &"hello\n"
  &"Undefined command: \"hello\".  Try \"help\".\n"
  ^error,msg="Undefined command: \"hello\".  Try \"help\"."
  (gdb)

So the fix looks reasonable to me too (at least, I can't think of anything better at the moment).

Thanks,

Simon
