Hello,
I'm not sure if your stlink gdbserver should be persistent, but when I'm using it with stm32vldiscovery kit it terminates allways when gdb disconnects. All other works great.

Here is the log:

As noted in the GDB documentation (section 20.3.1.2 http://sourceware.org/gdb/onlinedocs/gdb/Server.html), it is expected behavior for a GDB server to terminate after one session. Unfortunately, I don't think that stlink supports extended-remote, which would allow a persistent connection. That would be nice to add...

Note: extended-remote is officially used to tell GDB to stay connected to the server even when no target is being debugged, however it typically also has the side effect of keeping the server up when GDB disconnects.

It turns out that I had an old version, and in a more recent commit, someone tried to add support for this, but it does not quite work. Pull request #132 should add working support.

Thank you for fast solution. I was not aware that persistance is not standard behaviour for gdb server. I'm used to use JLink gdb server which has this ability. I will try your patch tomorrow.

This should be fixed by @prattmic with PR #132. Feel free to open a new issue when it is not working for v1.2.0 or current master. Thanks all for your contributions.
