cgdb freezes on startup

Bug Description

cgdb freezes on startup. It starts gdb, but never reaches the point where the gdb prompt is shown. This repeats on every try.

This happens on ARM with 14.04, but happened also on 13.10.

Compiling cgdb and/or gdb from source did not repeat the issue.
I.e. if using a souce-built gdb, cgdb works.
(gdb built with with './configure --pefix=/opt/gdb/ && make && make install', using the gdb_7.7.orig.tar.bz2 package).
A source-built cgdb fails with with the Ubuntu-packaged gdb, works with source-built gdb.

I opened a cgdb bug before narrowing the issue down to Ubuntus gdb package:
