It appears to me that the 'catch signal' support in GDB is not
multi-inferior safe. Combining the 'catch signal' command with the
'checkpoint' command, for example, results in an internal error:
signal_catchpoint_remove_location: Assertion `signal_catch_counts[iter]
> 0' failed.
A problem internal to GDB has been detected,
further debugging may prove unreliable.
Quit this debugging session? (y or n)
see the end of this e-mail for reproducer.
When checkpointing / catching a fork signal_catchpoint_remove_location
may be called twice in a row - once for the parent and once for the
child. This causes signal_catch_counts to go below 0. I would like some
advice on how to fix this problem as I am not sure what the correct fix

The problem can be reproduced using the following GDB commands - run GDB
catch signal SIGSEGV
