Sure.  I just wanted to generalise it to include [0-9] and "-", so I copied
from the regexp for font-lock-function-name-face.  However a proper solution
to OPs problem would need to take line continuation into account.

We could also distinguish between commands and keywords in the same way that
sh-mode distinguishes between builtins (umask, alias, limit etc) and keywords
(if, then, else etc).  But I'm not sure how much time people spend editing
their .gdbinit and whether its worth the effort.

As an aside, I notice that the 'd' in end doesn't get fontified like it used
to.  I've just made a couple of changes to gdb-script-mode and I'm not sure
how I could have bust that.
