I started playing with similar solutions.  I also started looking at
the role tui_refresh_frame_and_register_information plays in keeping
the source/asm windows up to date.  My conclusion was it does nothing
but add more complication.

Tom, the patch below applies on top of yours, it removes all of the
source/asm updating from tui_refresh_frame_and_register_information.
There's some direct action taken in the symtab changed observer

I also now call update_source_window_as_is on all source windows after
the vertical scroll - this partly fixes the asm/source scroll
synchronisation issue Hannes pointed out.  Calling the *_as_is version
has (I think) an added benefit - if you scroll horizontally, and then
scroll up/down, the horizontal scroll is maintained.  This feels much
nicer to me, and is what caused me to remove the code from

I said partly fixes the scroll synchronisation issue as scrolling the
asm window doesn't (and never has I think) caused the source window to
scroll - it kind of feels like it should though... this probably just
requires us to add something similar to the asm windows vert scroll

There is one issue with this patch, but I've run out of time right now
to look at this any further, if you fire up gdb on gdb then do:

  tui enable
  # will be in main now.
  break gdb_main

The breakpoint line will be the first line in the console, rather than
being in the centre of the window.

I don't know if this is a worth while direction to go in or not, what
do you think?
