If you "C-h f gdb RET", you will see that Emacs 24 switched to use the
GDB/MI interface, so the --annotate=3 thingy is no longer TRT, and I'm
quite sure it will interfere in "interesting" ways.

Does the interactive invocation via "M-x gdb" work, or does it fail in
the same way?  If the latter, set debug-on-* non-nil, and post the
traceback.  If the former, modify your gdb-pad to fit the arguments
passed to GDB by the interactive invocation.

There's a search feature on the bug tracker site, just search for
relevant keywords.

See admin/notes/bugtracker in the Emacs tree near you, it has all
those details spelled out.
