Fixed in the development version.

Unfortunately, the change in gdb also made the disassemble command useless for Gforth (disassembles whole functions instead of the specified address range), so we will have to look for another alternative.

The gforth disassembler creates a temporary file containing gdb commands, for example:

set verbose off
set logging file /tmp/gforthdis.bYKzp3OlGS
set logging on
disas 0x16CA0 0x16CE0
set logging off

The command "disas 0x16CA0 0x16CE0" causes an error message
"A syntax error in expression, near '0x16CE0'." when executed on gdb 7.1

According to the gdb documentation, the correct syntax is: "disassemble start,end" i.e. a comma delimiter is required between the fields, not a space.

See https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?30579 for a similar bug with a different package.
