Don't know enough about gtk, but do know that the FreeBSD 5 debugger is
seriously broken while debugging a threaded executable.  Is gnubg threaded?
(Could become threaded if a shared library happens to call pthread_create().
SDL for example seems to do that)

What happens is that it assumes the thread ID's to be sequential starting at
0, while they realy are seemingly random numbers.  It's fixed in BSD 6, but
I'm not sure why they didn't in BSD 5.  Didn't chase it very much either, as
I don't hit threaded programs very often yet, but it's definately annoying
if you happen to get cought by one.  Also I'm personally only running BSD 6
at the moment, which doesn't have the problem anymore.
