The expected line of thinking is "Hey, this can't possibly be right!" -
"How could this go unnoticed in several weeks of beta and rc testing?" -
"Maybe there is something wrong with my setup".

How do you find out whether a version of gdb is usable, or not? How do
you find out which exact version any given build of gdb has? Which
features this build theoretically supports? Which features work in
practice? [First hint: the version string is free text. Distributions
put all kind of more or less interesting information there. Second hint:
there are four rhetorical questions in this paragraph]
