Can you please put this info into a bug report and include more information. I 
have never used GDB across machines, so please be as specific as possible and 
supply us with binaries or similar that can be easily run. Could we maybe 
reproduce the same on a single machine when using GDBServer and connecting to 
localhost? That would make it even simpler.
