Pedro> In some other local patch that I hadn't posted, I handled a similar

Tom> I didn't, but I like it, so I'll make this change.

Here's the new version of this patch.

    Remove cleanups from execute_gdb_command
    
    This replaces a cleanup in execute_gdb_command with an instance of
    std::string.
    
    Testing showed that this originally missed a cleanup that was returned
    by prevent_dont_repeat.  This version of the patch changes
    prevent_dont_repeat to return a scoped_restore rather than a cleanup.
