I defer to the gcc people for the best solution.

It is an issue in the "sample" HP stub. My solution to this was to fixed
the stub. Look for the trap#1 exception and back the PC by 2. Easier to
change my code than GDB. GDB has a macro to control the behaviour. I
suspect a patch to change it will never be accepted as it would break
all currently working stubs including mine.
