Ooops!  I need to do something to make Emacs go into tcl mode 
automatically for .exp files.

Yes.  On Windows host, the output I'm seeing for this test that it's 
trying to match is:

(gdb) info auto-load python-scripts
Loaded  Script 


Yes     py-section-script.py 


         full name: \\long\windows\path\to\py-section-script.py
Yes     gdb.inlined-script 


(gdb)

This matches the first "fail" pattern as well as the "pass" pattern, so 
the ordering is important.  From the comment on this test, it's clear 
this output is intended to be a "pass", so that one should go first.
