I don't believe that this is an EGCS problem.  I've seen the same thing
happen with binaries compiled with "stock" B18.

I've noticed that if I let the program I'm running run to completion or if
I kill it from another window without letting gdb kill it, that things seem
to run better, i.e., no hangs.  Maybe it's just superstitious behavior on
my part, though.
