      The gcc version I'm using is 2.95.3-1
      and the optimizer isn't disabled:
      CFLAGS = -g -O2

      If I put a break at line 1615:
      if (term_is_builtin(term))
      I get:
      (gdb) break term.c:1615
      Breakpoint 1 at 0x4fcdee: file term.c, line 1615.
      (gdb) run
      The program being debugged has been started already.
