Proposed change to gud-display-line

I intend to change the last operation in gud-display-line:        

(set-window-point window overlay-arrow-position)


(if window (set-window-point window overlay-arrow-position))

This should not affect its use when gud-minor-mode is not 'gdba as
gud-display-line does a display-buffer earlier, which ensures that
window is non nil. I want this line to do nothing when I am not
displaying source, i.e using M-x gdba and displaying machine code.

This relates to a post on comp.emacs which says:

I can see there might be ambiguities if there is more than one window for the
given buffer but this behaviour could give unexpected results.
