gdb/gdbserver behavior changed from 8.2 to 8.3

Sometimes I have to debug GUI or curses based programs.
Up to the change from gdb 8.2 to 8.3, I used to do:

1) from one console:
    gdbserver port:1111 path_to_exe
2) from another console:
    gdb -ex "target remote localhost:1111" path_to_exe

And I was happy...

Now with gdb 8.3, when I run 1), I get the following error:
    port:1111: cannot resolve name: Name or service not known
    Exiting

Does anybody knows what I have to do to solve this issue?

Thanks,

Xavier
