Query user with gdb MI intepreter

Hi all

I have a problem with the current gdb that, run from an eclipse 
front-end using MI interpreter, query the user with defaulted_query () 
to prompt him to "Quit this debugging session?" .
Is that a normal behavior or not ?
I thought that gdb should not query user when using MI mode, but I can 
we wrong, that's my point.
Here is part of th back trace. As you will see, we have an assertion 
that comes from a problem with the frame unwinder, but I want first to 
make sure that this assertion can request for user interaction or no.
The command that leads to the assertion is a simple -exec-next

#6 0x0805ba75 in defaulted_query (ctlstr=0x83459ac "%s\nQuit this 
debugging session? ", defchar=0 '\0',args=0xbfff8ab4 "6r\t\030\001") at

session? ") at
