Hi Robins,

There are some nasty hacks in the debugger code to work around what
I've only been able to pin down as 'issues' in the wxWidgets threading
code. I wouldn't be at all surprised if you're seeing something
similar here - unfortunately I think the only thing you can do is get
far more familiar with GDB than anyone should ever have to :-(
