bug#4714: 23.1.50; wrong-type-argument stringp nil in gdb

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

If you download the program
http://clivecooper.co.uk/tutorial/changetime.tar.gz
from
http://clivecooper.co.uk/tutorial/index.html

(this was just used to get a small enough program which replicated the
bug - I'm guessing there may be a issue with qt moc'ed file here)

the tar file includes a compiled version of the program - but you should
probably build it yourself though you'll need a qt dev environment.

Run the program under gdb and when the program window appears interrupt
it in gdb and once interrupted move one level up the call stack.

You then get a wrong-type-argument stringp nil error:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp nil)
  string-match("//+" nil)
  gud-find-file(nil)
  gud-display-line(nil 83)
  gud-display-frame()
  gdb-frame-handler()


If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/home/robert/emacs/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
