Right, forgot about that...

I tried this and it doesn't fix the problem.

I'm not sure how I can debug gdb without a working gdb, but I'm trying to
improvise...

I just tried running strace on gdb in both scenarios.

Interestingly, in the "doesn't work" case, gdb eventually just hangs. Here
is the last few lines of output,

[ GDB hangs here ]

IAGO is _not_ the local machine.

In the "works" case, gdb runs to completion. Here are the corrisponding
lines of output as about.

[ ... ]

MILHOUSE _is_ the local machine.

I'll send some more info after doing some more digging....
