RFC: Remove gdb complaints from gdbinit.in



I think this is more aggravating than helpful. It fills with crud my screen and from what I've heard in various places, it's not clear whether it's a gdb or a gcc bug.


Regardless of where the bug is, it certainly is very aggravating and I don't really see its usefulness.

Any strong objections to this patch?


Thanks.
