Yes, I was typing into *scratch*.  I'm a gdb newbie, so here's what I
did:

1. From a shell, cd to src, run ./emacs -Q
2. M-x global-font-lock-mode RET
3. From another shell, cd to src, determine PID of Emacs and then run
   gdb -p PID
4. Enter following commands to gdb:

source .gdbinit
set logging on
set height 0
p current_thread->m_current_buffer
break Fmake_thread
cont

5. Return to Emacs and enter:
   C-x C-f C-a C-k /scp:server:src/emacs/lisp/emacs-lisp/b*.el RET
6. In gdb, enter the following:

clear
break set_point_both if current_thread->m_current_buffer == $1
commands
xbacktrace
cont
end
break temp_set_point_both if buffer == $1
commands
xbacktrace
cont
end
cont

8. Return to Emacs and type until the cursor makes a backward jump.
9. C-x C-c

It looks to me like Thread 1 is the main thread, and the thread names
printed by gdb don't match what Emacs thinks they are.  Thread 1 starts
out as "emacs" but its name changes after I continue from the
Fmake_thread breakpoint:


Thread 1 "emacs" hit Breakpoint 3, Fmake_thread (function=XIL(0x4867b15), 
    name=XIL(0x45b85a4)) at thread.c:768
768     {
Deleted breakpoint 3 
Breakpoint 4 at 0x635530: file intervals.c, line 1826.
Type commands for breakpoint(s) 4, one per line.
End with a line saying just "end".
Breakpoint 5 at 0x635360: file intervals.c, line 1729.
Type commands for breakpoint(s) 5, one per line.
End with a line saying just "end".
Continuing.

Thread 1 "find-file /scp:" hit Breakpoint 5, temp_set_point_both (
    buffer=0xdb5800 <bss_sbrk_buffer+458720>, address@hidden, 
    address@hidden) at intervals.c:1729
1729    {
"redisplay_internal (C function)" (0x0)


And then later in gdb.txt this thread shows up:
