I just compared an MP amd64 of 31st March with an MP i386 of 2nd April, using
the same gdb /usr/bin/dig example.

On run, they both receive a SIGTRAP
After c, the amd64 gets another SIGRAP, but the i386 apparently runs
"RXl+", but dig consumes over 80% of one the cpus.  DiG 9.9.0a1 is never
printed. dig simply consumes cpu cycles. ctrl-C in an attempt to see
what dig is doing just prints "^C". kill -HUP the dig process then
shows (well, from the beginning on the i386):

(gdb) run
Starting program: /usr/bin/dig 

Program received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap.
0xbb71f377 in _sys___kevent50 () from /usr/lib/
(gdb) c
Program received signal SIGCONT, Continued.
0xbb71f377 in _sys___kevent50 () from /usr/lib/

On the amd64, "continuing" several times, one eventually sees the output
of dig... (though it is still impossible to step through main)
