Right, I'm just saying that I sometimes like to look at the output
while the test run is in progress.  That's pretty much the only time
that I do look at the output: I never pay attention to the numbers at
the bottom, because once I get to that stage, I have the entire
gdb.sum file available for use.

Yes; that's one reason that my preference for the current behavior is
only mild.  What would make more of a difference for me (and,
presumably, for other people) would be to make it as easy as possible
to compare sum files: regularize the thread output a bit more, get rid
of gratuitous numbers (especially the value of $fp in pc-fp.exp).
