I understand that.  But the `M-x gdb' subset of `M-x gdba' should still
work if you pass `-fullname'.  The rest of course won't, but that's OK:
you get what you asked for.

And probably more in order to get the initial `info breakpoints'
and things like that.
That should just result in error messages or other unexpected output
in the *gdb* buffer, but without breaking the command-line prompt behavior.
