That was unexpected, but re-reading Makefile.pre.in I see where it's coming from.  Please do add it to svn:ignore.

Looks like I forgot to add the removal of the file to the "distclean" target.  Sorry about that.  Presumably adding:
  -rm -f python*-gdb.py
should do the trick (as I understand it, if the glob fails to match, it will happily fail to "rm" the non-existant file named "python*-gdb.py").

Another nit I spotted: the buildbot is "unexpectedly" skipping test_gdb on Win32 (with "gdb not found in path").  Looking at _expectations in Lib/test/regrtest.py it strikes me that test_gdb is likely to be skipped on every configuration other than on "linux2") - should I wire that in with a decorator within test_gdb.py?

To my knowledge, OS X doesn't ship with gdb 7 - though presumably someone could build their own copy, linking with the system Python, and if so, the python.exe-gdb.py file would then be of use in debugging the freshly-built ./python.exe
