           Summary: show_doc for gdb.Parameter has strange behaviour
           Product: gdb
           Version: 7.1
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: python
        AssignedTo: unassigned@sourceware.org
        ReportedBy: markflorisson88@gmail.com

The show doc is not shown properly. In the next example the show_doc is totally
different from the output that's actually shown. Not only does it drop
everything after the '.', it also manages to translate 'This' to 'Is'.

(gdb) python
>class Param(gdb.Parameter):
>    show_doc = "This is the show doc. This part is not shown!"
>Param("some-param", gdb.COMMAND_NONE, gdb.PARAM_BOOLEAN)
(gdb) show some-param
Is the show doc is off.
