Sorry for the non-kernel related mail... but it is short :-)

Having upgraded to libc 5.4.13/ 1.8.5, when I start gdb 4.16 up
on a binary and try to run it, I get

warning: Unable to find dynamic linker breakpoint function.
warning: GDB will be unable to debug shared library initializers
warning: and track explicitly loaded dynamic code.

[Running 2.0.25 if it is of any consequence]

Is this supposed to happen? I'll attempt to recompile gdb (but I think
it is something to do with 1.8.5)

I never got this before the upgrade to libc/ (I was using 5.4.12
and 1.8.1)

Otherwise it all seems to work (I don't need to debug shared libraries
at this point :-)
