What if you install 'gdb' package. Does it make any difference?

Oh, wery interesting... Installing gdb actually fixed arm-none-eabi-gdb :)

'gdb' package contains runtime files. While ARM and AVR version contains only the binary. To fix your problem correctly the common files (like python) should be moved to a separate package with name 'gdb-common'.

gdb-common does now exist, and it's a dependency of arm-none-eabi-gdb. Did that fix the problem?
