OK.  In that case it might be a good idea to try the mode in the package gdb-mi
at ELPA ( which uses GDB/MI instead of annotations.  If
you are familiar with Emacs, this is very straightforward to install/uninstall.
This will replace the current mode, anyway, as annotations are being
deprecated.  Also I know that there are at least two people (Denis Pilat and
Andrew Stubbs) from STMicroelectronics who have been active on the GDB mailing
list and who have contributed to GDB/MI. If this works for you please report
back to this list.

You could try '--annotations=1' which is an alias for '--fullname' but it looks
like this version might not support it anyway.
