We have a big issue here.

There are a lot of multi-user Unix systems that aren't getting tested
enough, or tested at all: aix, hpux, irix, solaris.  There are very few
posts to gdb-testers for those architectures.

When I clean up my mailbox and my back-log, I'm going to work on this.
I'm going to ask around for people who can give me ssh accounts on such
machines, or are willing to become volunteer testers.

Yes, gdb.cp/local.exp.

Right.  I put out a second version of the patch organized like that.
So you can discard the first version.
