Description of problem:
When I use gdb to debug eclipse on x86_64, trying to step through some of the
methods causes the following:
internal-error: sect_index_text not initialized
A problem internal to GDB has been detected,
further debugging may prove unreliable.
Quit this debugging session? (y or n)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Ignore SIGPWR and SIGXCPU using 'handle'
2.Use gdb to debug the eclipse source code on x86_64, set a breakpoint at
3.Use next or step to move through the code, eventually you receive this error
Actual Results: I get the above mentioned error
Expected Results: The debugging session should continue without error.

Tried to reproduce on RHEL3U8.x86_64.
Oldest / time-relevant Eclipse I found in Brew was `eclipse-2.1.2-5.x86_64.rpm'
(Apr 22 2004).
But still it did not run - see the attached error.
On the other hand even RHEL3 gdb is now gdb-6.3 based and I am sorry but I
would rather fix it only if it gets reported for something >= RHEL4 again.
