Subject: bug#9858: 24.0.90; M-x gdb breaks if gdb-show-main is non-nil but there's no file loaded

The info node GDB Graphical Interface File > GDB User Interface Layout suggests setting the (customizable) variable gdb-show-main non-nil in order to have the source buffer displayed on startup of M-x gdb. But if you do this and then run M-x gdb without specifying a file to debug, M-x gdb doesn't initialize properly, and the *Messages* buffer contains

error in process filter: gud-find-file: Wrong type argument: stringp, nil

I think M-x gdb should just start up normally in this situation, perhaps with a message that there's no source file.

To reproduce:

emacs -Q
M-: (setq gdb-show-main t) <ret>
M-x gdb <delete any file name in the prompt> <return>
