GDB server and threaded application

I believe I have the solib path set correctly and
all the symbols are being loaded when I connect
to the remote target.
BTW I am able to debug core files correctly and the
core files show all the threads. Its an issue if
I try to attach to a running multithreaded process.
gdbserver :12345 --attach <PID>, I just pick up one
of the PID's of the multithreaded process. I guess
this is supported.
Thanks for all the information.
