Reproducible with:
../gdbserver/gdbserver :1234 gdb.python/py-finish-breakpoint
gdb -nx -x ~/.gdbinit -ex r --args ../gdb -nx -ex 'file gdb.python/py-finish-breakpoint' -ex 'target remote localhost:1234' -ex 'b test_exec_exit' -ex c -ex 'source gdb.python/' -ex 'python SimpleFinishBreakpoint(gdb.newest_frame())' -ex c

I have seen this serial_debug_p crash in various GDB debugging cases but they
were not well reproducible.  I understand this bug is unrelated to
gdb.python/py-finish-breakpoint.exp .

I also tried to reorder remote_close a bit but this patch seems as the right
one to me.

The .exp patch fixes in fact an unrelated testcase but both happen with
gdbserver and py-finish-breakpoint.exp.

The testcase has been tested on x86_64-fedorarawhide-linux-gnu.

	* gdb.python/py-finish-breakpoint.exp (catch out of scope after exec):
	Make it unsupported with gdbserver.
