Yes, this is the right forum for asking help in debugging Emacs

Type "run -q" to start Emacs.

GDB stops because in many cases you would want to prepare the
debugging session: set breakpoints, add directories to the source
search list, set various GDB options, etc.

This is the right directory from where to run a debugging session.
In particular, the file .gdbinit there makes sure you have the
Emacs-specific GDB commands (such as xstring and pr) defined.
