I don't quite understand what's happening here, but I get the
following new failure:

FAIL: gdb.base/annota1.exp: send SIGUSR1

and some more fallout from that (and similar failures in annota3.exp).
It seems that if we've just hit a breakpoint and then do "signal
SIGUSR1" we never enter the signal handler or ignore the breakpoint in
the signal handler.

I'm somewhat surprised to hear that the same test doesn't fail on x86
Linux for you.
