Doh! Of course, that was so small tweak that testing it was not necessary ;-)
Here's yet another revision.

Hmm, this patch actually makes gdb behave consistently for all platforms,
so it's probably global question, as opposed to specific detail of any given
platform behaviour.

- Volodya

	* thread.c (add_thread_silent): Renamed
	from add_thread.
	(add_thread): Announce new thread.
	* gdbthread.h (add_thread_silent): Declare.
	* inf-ttrace.c (inf_ttrace_wait): Don't
	inform about new thread, as add_thread is always
	called too, and will take care of that.
	* infrun.c (handle_inferior_event): Likewise.
	* procfs.c (procfs_wait): Likewise.
	* remote.c (remote_currthread): Likewise.
	* sol-thread.c (sol_thread_wait): Likewise.
	* win32-nat.c (get_win32_debug_event): Likewise.
	* linux-thread-db.c (attach_thread): Likewise.
	* linux-nat.c (lin_lwp_attach_lwp): Don't inform
	about new thread.  This is called only from
	linux-thread-db.c:attach_thread, which will take care.
	Remove the verbose parameter.
	* linux-nat.h (lin_lwp_attach_lwp): Adjust prototype.
