SubjectRe: behavior of overwriting running executables?

Seconded. That or something that achieves the same effect. There is
nothing more irritating than having to leave gdb just because you
discovered the bug and want to recompile. I end up mangling all sorts
of Makefiles to output to a temporary and them mv it to the real name.
I don't need that on other systems.
