Ah, you are sooo optimistic.....!!!!

Why don't I take a look. I'll let you know. I suspect those variables
are long gone but I am paranoid.

BTW, there is some more work to be done to clean that mess up completely.

1. Allocate dynamically the section_offsets stuff. I have a patch in
the works for that.

2. Make gdb stop using SECT_OFF_* completely. I haven't thought about this
one yet.

Any volunteer??? :-)
