Xilinx FAE guy reproduced my problem. Now I am almost certain it comes from
the Xilinx 2.6.28 linux tree.
I'll have a try today with an old archive of 2.6.27-rc4.
Below is the message from Tom Curran (AVNET).

I've been able to duplicate your problem with gdb application debugging.
This appears to be a problem introduced with the 2.6.28 kernel. I did not
have this problem before with the 2.6.27-rc9 kernel. I will investigate
this further with Xilinx and get back to you soon.

While I cannot say too much here, I would strongly suggest that you post
more details on how gdbserver actually crashes. Maybe this rings a bell for

This makes me nervous. Non-deterministic behaviour either points to
unstable hardware to test-conditions not fully under control, i.e. some
parameters in the system change that may seem unlinked at first. I would
try to research here a little bit more - and write a logbook for yourself of
the tests. Usually this turns out to be worth *a lot* when new insights can
be used to re-classify the old tests and vice versa those tests can be used
to test new insights.
