With the last svn update, I find I can no longer use gdb to debug vlc. (I am using FC3). I get this:

  % gdb ./vlc

  A problem internal to GDB has been detected,
  further debugging may prove unreliable.

I am however able to debug other binaries. Anyone else had a similar
problem or know what to do? (Build gdb is an obvious solution.)
