I added that and re-ran make check. It worked but gdb's child process
(tail -f file) is still lingering afterward until I kill it manually.

Why has nobody else noticed this? Are other versions of gdb less
stubborn? Maybe I did something to make it stubborn, but I don't
know what that could be.

In case you're keeping score:

Debian 5.0r3, ppc32

All 366 tests passed
(45 tests were not run)
make[4]: Leaving directory `/tmp/coreutils-8.1/tests'

All 177 tests passed
(14 tests were not run)
make[6]: Leaving directory `/tmp/coreutils-8.1/gnulib-tests'
