Does it help to send a SIGCONT to all processes in T state?

No it doesn't, gdb loose its context when doing this(this triggers an internal gdb error):

lin-lwp.c:653: internal-error: stop_wait_callback: Assertion `pid == GET_LWP (lp->ptid)' failed.
A problem internal to GDB has been detected,
further debugging may prove unreliable.
