bug#11395: 24.0.96; Sporadic crashing

I've compiled emacs with -g, and can load the executable under gdb.
However:

1) When run this way, where does Emacs look by default for my own .el
files? Normally I put them under
/Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/Resources/site-lisp, which Emacs under OS
X searches (along with all subdirectories) automatically.

2) When I type a key in the resulting Emacs window, the character I just
typed appears in the shell window, not the Emacs window. How do I get
around that?

Thanks.
