As the initiator of that thread, thank you very much for bringing up
the issue again and for all the investigative work. Since my initial
report did not result in any fixes, I have given up on gud and am
using cgdb, which is inferior but works well enough, but it would be
very welcome to have a fully-working gud again.

Just one update on that original report: item #3 has been fixed by
recent versions of gdb and is no longer a problem.
