I don't know if there are other reasons. but I think for once, it has to 
be tested.

That is, using it on Windows, or a new Linux distro with a new gdb 
version, probably works. But Lazarus still runs in environments, that 
are forced to use older gdb. So changing the default means to check that 
all those gdb versions will work with the changed defaults.

There may be other reasons, of which I am not aware..
