Perhaps, "info threads" is fixed. But since both "info threads" and "running" problems were [most probably] caused by the "main thread registering" fix, maybe it is better to investigate "^running" problem before submission? What if they are connected? ;-)

I have to say, that my goal is not just report issues, I would like to help fixing them. Unfortunately, I do not have much time to learn GDB, so I'm just asking for hints: what can I do to discover the root cause. For example, who is responding "^running"? What functions/files should I debug to figure out the problem?
