GDB can only present the information present in the debug info, so if GCC is just slapping in the fully expanded instantiated types, then that's all GDB can give the user.
... and this isn't true. GDB can show a more useful representation of data structures than simply listing all the bases and members, and that's exactly what the new python pretty printing does.
