The manual says:

GDB> is reached, or the current stack frame returns.

(actually, it should say *selected* stack frame returns)

As Eli says, there is now another command called "advance".  I think this has
the behaviour you are talking about:

The problem is that the documentation just talks about being able to skip over
recursive functions and doesn't mention inline functions.  So I'm not sure
that they would see it as a bug.
