That just occurred to me about 10 seconds before your email hit my
mailbox.  There are some C++ cases where this can happen too (function
templates and operators, if I recall).  They are probably corner cases
that GDB doesn't handle specially, though.

What if the return type demangling didn't print the return type first
(the return type could be in parentheses or something after the
argument list or it could end with " returns void")?  That would also
be a way to solve the problem.
