While using multi-window gdb, I opened another frame, and looked at a
related source file in it, though not the one that currently contained
the execution point. I then switched back to the gdb frame, and advanced
execution until it reached a point in the file in the buffer currently
displayed in the other frame. gdb raised this frame, which happened to
fill the whole screen (although the focus remained in the gdb frame).

I submit that this is rather unhelpful behavior: in multi-window mode,
gdb should always show the current execution point in the source window.
I don=E2=80=99t expect the behavior to change just because I happen to have=
 the
relevant buffer open in another frame.
