This debug session is much clear than last one.  Thanks.

Before you run `step', turn on some debug output first.  Like this `set
debug infrun 1'.  Then, when you run `step', you can see some debug
output, which will show how PC is changed and events inferior gets
during command `step'.

However, before we go into the details of debug output, could you check
whether GDB cvs trunk works or not.  You just have to build gdb for arm,
and I think GDB cvs trunk should be able to work with your 7.2 gdbserver.
