You nailed it!

I was invoking gdb with 'M-x gdb'. Now using 'M-x gud-gdb' instead solved all my problems.

Thank you very much!

I've been using Emacs + GDB (GUD) for debugging programs written in C
since more or less 2 years. I generally recompile my projects by just
invoking 'make' in the GDB shell.

What bothers me is that when the build process outputs a lot of text in
a short period of time (such a compile error or warnings) the GDB shell
doesn't catch all the text, and sometimes part of the text is displayed
when the next command is executed. For example:

GDB under Emacs:
(gdb) make
gcc -MMD -c -g -Wall -I inc/ -Og src/testlib.c -o src/testlib.o
src/testlib.c:4:1: error: expected ‘ int isPrime(uint64_t num)
make: (gdb)
Which Emacs command do you use to invoke GDB?  Is it "M-x gud-gdb" or
"M-x gdb"?

If you used the latter, try the former instead.
