   inhibits the setting of breakpoints on arbitrary assembler statements
   via `break *loc', the breakpoint is set at the start of the corresponding
   source line instead.

You're right, the ability to set breakpoints at arbitrary addresses is an
essential feature of GDB.  Fred, what was your rationale for this change?
