Yes, but only because GDB was calling read_child and write_child without 
checking the address first.  FSDB already checks the address before 
accessing it (Morten Welinder, who wrote FSDB, is not known as someone 
who forgets these kinds of safety nets ;-).

Note that the case in point didn't really require FSDB to actually access 
another segment.  (None of the DJGPP debuggers currently can access other 
segments; GDB provides a limited way of doing that, because it supports 
calling functions linked into the application.)
