Its simply because I didn't understand the meaning of the warning generated by the
_iniitialize_check_for_gdb_ini file. It said that I should rename gdb.ini to .gdbinit,
but when I did that, the file was not "sourced" anymore...

Now that its fixed again, I understand the comment.
Just one notice:
  this warning is only done for the $HOME/gdb.ini file,
should it be also issued if a gdb.ini exists in the current directory?
Because the GDBINIT_FILENAME is read first in $HOME dir
and after in the starting dir of the GDB executable.
