Hello,

I just nailed this down after it has been annoying me for some time,
fixed it with a similar patch as the one submitted by John, and came
here to report it.

The reason that we are "not detecting" an exited thread (at least in the
scenario I got is), gdb/thread.c:

  --- cut ---
  static void
  delete_thread_1 (ptid_t ptid, int silent)
  {
  ...
    /* If this is the current thread, or there's code out there that
       relies on it existing (refcount > 0) we can't delete yet.  Mark
       it as exited, and notify it.  */
    if (tp->refcount > 0
        || ptid_equal (tp->ptid, inferior_ptid))
      {
  ...
         /* Will be really deleted some other time.  */
         printf_unfiltered ("========== Will be really deleted some other time %u\n", ptid);
         return;
       }
  ...
  if (tpprev)
    tpprev->next = tp->next;
  else
    thread_list = tp->next;
  --- cut ---

In my scenario tp->refcount is 0, but
"ptid_equal (tp->ptid, inferior_ptid)" is true, so the thread's entry is
not removed from the global "threads_list".

The gdb output (with "set debug fbsd-lwp" enabled):

  --- cut ---
  FLWP: adding thread for LWP 102009
  [New LWP 102009 of process 40304]
  FLWP: fbsd_resume for ptid (-1, 0, 0)
  FLWP: fbsd_resume for ptid (40304, 102009, 0)
  FLWP: fbsd_resume for ptid (-1, 0, 0)
  FLWP: fbsd_resume for ptid (40304, 102009, 0)
  FLWP: fbsd_resume for ptid (-1, 0, 0)
  FLWP: deleting thread for LWP 102009
  [LWP 102009 of process 40304 exited]
  ...
  ptrace: No such process.
  --- cut ---

Hope this helps.
