Somebody asked the very same question maybe just a couple of days ago,
on this very same mailing list. To get the answer to your question, you
should search the mailing list archives, or read the GDB documentation.

I did read the GDB documentation and the documentation for finish does not describe the behavior.


Continue running until just after function in the selected stack
frame returns. Print the returned value (if any).

It would be nice if you could point out in the documentation where the
restriction is noted.  I missed the previous message when scanning the
archive, sorry.
