GDB is crashing when trying to debug directly on the machine and I haven't
had the time to dive in to figure out why; we've had to limp along using
dbx from Solaris Studio in the mean-time.  I had hoped if I could get
remote debugging to work perhaps the problem wouldn't manifest or would
help shed light on the problem by causing a different problem.
