Description Jeff Johnston 2005-10-26 17:54:23 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #171824 +++

gdb before 6.3 searches the current working directory to load the
.gdbinit configuration file, which allows local users to execute
arbitrary commands as the user running gdb.

More information can be found in the gentoo BTS:

gdb- has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
