This looks like an Aquamacs bug report and it's not clear to me: what does open
a program for debugging mean?  By default the main source file won't appear
unless execution stops there.

Anyway, assuming it is for Aquamacs, I can only make general observations
unless it can be reproduced on Emacs:

* Apple have their own version of Gdb, you need FSF Gdb (in Darwin, from Fink?)
  for this mode to fully work.

* Sometimes you might indeed lose your window configuration but
  gdb-restore-windows (on the menu-bar) can often restore it.

* It takes more practice to control all the buffers with this mode but
  gives you more control over you program when you can.

* If you still don't like it you can get the old one by using the
  fullname option e.g by setting gud-gdb-command-name to "gdb --fullname".
  This old mode (i.e Emacs 21 style) probably works with Apple's Gdb.
