Glad you could track that down. Yes, my patch made GDB less tolerant
of targets which claim they can report the stopped data address, but
actually fail. It will only report watchpoints when the target
doesn't know what address has changed, or report a changed address
that falls on a particular watchpoint. This lets us keep track of
which thread hit each watchpoint.
