I was fighting with a similar problem almost 2 years ago.  Looks like
it might be related.  At some point the problem seemed to go away and
I determined what the root cause was.  :-(

I haven't been using gdb lately, so I don't know if it's the same
problem.  Nobody I had talked to had seen the issue on other 405
platforms.  It could very well be something virtex-specific.

That's not much help, but maybe it will give you some clues.
