Thanks for all the help, to avoid spam, here's all my replies in one mail.

Yes, sure works better this way. This leads to the next question, how do I set 
a breakpoint on
raise ?

gdb /usr/bin/Gorm
break -[NSException raise]      
... future...  y

But it doesn't break, when it hits the exception.

I attached it, it's fairly tiny. The problem is an exception while loading it, 
can't produce the stack trace though. Gorm is 1.2.12.

yes, I think that solves my problem, as the compiler should find them.

The way I installed everything was, I installed OpenSUSE 11.4 first, when it 
was time to chose a windowmanager I chose XFCE. Then I installed your packages 
from Yast. I am sure my window manager is still XFCE.

Yes, that was more of a joke. ;)

gdb --version says

GNU gdb (GDB) SUSE (7.2-3.3)

All respect to Petrucci for technical proficiency - 
but that's like being able to type really fast. 
Mick Mars writes a much better book.
