Jan, thanks for help.
You won't belive:

pit@debian:~/src/test$ echo 'char str[7]="i=0";main(){}'|gcc -x c - -g;gdb -nx ./a.out

(gdb) p str
$1 = "i=0\000\000\000"
(gdb) set print null-stop
(gdb) p str
$2 = ""
(gdb) 

I'll check out latest GDB version as soon as i can, but this particular version (7.0.1, Deban squeeze x86) seems having kind of bug
