Subject: [Bug gdb/30847] gdbtypes.c:3355: internal-error causes gdb to abort when setting breakpoint

--- Comment #6 from David Brumley <dbrumley at forallsecure dot com> ---
I didn't answer the stab question; apologies.

I don't have a super strong opinion here. Older binaries are pretty prevalent
in cyber-physical systems (airplanes, power, etc) since the system deployment
timeline is often decades. It's always nice if the latest gdb just works, and I
think relevant to the sysadmin or security trying to diagnose issues.  Those
same people typically don't have source.

It's totally reasonable to deprioritize and just recommend they use an older
gdb. It's a question, at least to me, of how much the focus is on the developer
vs. users of compiled code.
