FYI we have issue with test_gdb on Fedora for at least 5 years. Most issues come from -Og optimization level of test_gdb.

Recently, I modified test_gdb to skip tests when we detect that gdb fails to read debug symbols, which happens often when using -Og: bpo-40019.

    bpo-40019: Skip test_gdb if Python was optimized (GH-19081)
    test_gdb now skips tests if it detects that gdb failed to read debug
    information because the Python binary is optimized.
