The concept of a "project directory" may be useful, but it is not
appropriate for setting a breakpoint on a known file in an Emacs
window.  Emacs knows the full absolute pathname of the file you are
setting a breakpoint on.  It should pass that to gdb, period.  If I
set a breakpoint using a fully qualified absolute filename, gdb should
be able to figure out which file I mean, period.
