Ubuntu Linux 5.04, GDB --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=arm-linux, built from release 6.3 sources.  Debugging a remote ARM Linux target via TCP (the precise configuration details are confidential, but I doubt they're relevant.)

"info files' when remote debugging an ARM target over TCP says "serial" twice rather than "TCP".  This is obviously not a big deal, but it is incorrect; even if the command can't tell the difference, just replacing the explicit mentions of "serial" with "remote" would suffice.
Remote Step:

gdbserver :1234 /opt/palmos/tests/debugger/SimpleCall.kj

Host Steps: 
/opt/gdb-6.3/gdb/gdb /exported/device_root/opt/palmos/tests/debugger/SimpleCall.kj

set solib-absolute-prefix /exported/device_root/
target remote
info files

Remote serial target in gdb-specific protocol:
Debugging a target over a serial line.
