I don't know the exact details but maybe, in your lisp file, you could put:

(setq default-directory 

Emacs doesn't add a random filename, as you suggest, but the most recently
compiled executable, so it might even find your executable in this case.  If
not, you will only have to type gvu.

I think gud-gdb-command-name was never meant to include the executable, it just
worked.  The reason for not including it, I guess, is that users generally want
to debug more than one filename.  I think that, generally, the convenience of
Emacs guessing the right name of the executable is greateer than the
inconvenience of guessing the wrong one.
