Careful of the abstraction layering here.  It's not (entirely) an
issue of GDB variants.  It depends more on the tools used to compile
the code you're debugging.  For instance, if you use a native Windows
toolchain to debug but your nightly builds run on a farm of Linux
systems, you'll get forwards slashes.

Right - as long as you've taught GDB where to find the sources it will
return fullnames in most contexts.
