This is total nit-picking, but I suggest that we avoid the use of
contractions in error messages. I think this is too casual.

    "can't" -> "cannot"
    "don't" -> "do not"

I agree with that (consistency).  I don't think I'd be fustrated at GDB
if I inserted the addresses in the wrong order and GDB errored out.
