Does it say [ready] here in the mode-line?

It does - I should have said that it doesn't happen every time I start up a gdb buffer

Do you have a .gdbinit file in this directory or $HOME?

If so, what happens if you do "gdb --annotate=3 -nx ipsa-so"?

If this works, what do you have in your .gdbinit?

If it still doesn't work, what happens if you also start with "emacs -Q"?

I've just managed to replicate this behaviour when starting with -Q
I think it happens when I type 'run' - at the prompt (already there in the buffer) - when the status line still says [initializing], so it changes to [ready] at around the same time as I press 'enter' ipsa-so is a fairly large file (c 90MB) and it takes around 2 sec from entering the 'gdb --annotate...' line to get to gdb showing [ready], I've just tried to do the same thing with the emacs binary and that starts up far too fast to get the same problem!
