This is very probably a bug in gdb-ui.el.  When gdb is doing nothing, the
variables gdb-input-queue and gdb-pending-triggers should be nil.  What are
the values in your case?  Which other GDB buffers are you using?  (Do C-x C-b
and look for "*.... of bits*").

To debug this properly we need a precise recipe.  Can you post a simple
program and configuration where this happens?
