I tested on gdb 8.1 compiled for AVR and still see "Saw new packet start in middle of old one"
message, but now gdb seems to ignore the packet error and just continue without the internal
error message.  I still would like to know where the problem is so that it can be fixed, else
gdb may end up with incomplete information of the flash memory content on the controller.
