Next time, please diff -u gdb.sum files; the rest is just noise.
Those do vary a little bit but they're more stable.  It looks like
your only change is mi-nsmoribund.exp, which is sometimes flaky.

Take a look at cvsutils; "cvsdo add" works.

(Or, nowadays, I suppose you could use the git mirror! :-)

Where does the access to 0x0 come from?  Is it inside
search_struct_field?  I wouldn't expect value_cast_structs to do any
cast in this case, but it does do a little extra work.

&& on the beginning of the line, please.
