Actually, the original bug report is not related to breakpoint commands.
Now, gdb does not emit "^running" on any CLI commands at all -- like
"continue", or "until". And when such commands are used inside gdb macro,
we're completely out of luck.

I'd imagine that "continue" used in breakpoint commands should also
emit "^running", but I'm not sure about this part.
