Nothing ... except that I need a script for starting emacs in gdb
inside emacs, a script for starting emacs in gdb outside emacs, a
script for starting emacs from the shell, ...

And I would like to be able to ask a person reporting a redisplay
related problem to see if the problem persists with emacs -Q (just as
we ask people to try ordinary bugs with emacs -q).
