gds is a totally separate package that actually predates geiser, and i
haven't used it, so i'm afraid i cannot help with the errors above (i'm
not even sure gds is maintained anymore, but i don't really know).

the debugging story in geiser is not specially good.  basically, geiser
notices that the debugger integrated in guile's REPL has been entered
and tries not to interfere, so that you can use all the usual ,-commands
in a geiser/guile REPL, but nothing else (e.g., one cannot set
breakpoints directly in an emacs scheme buffer or things like that).

hopefully the situation will improve in future versions of geiser, and
the objective is something a la gds, but we're not there yet.

Some stories are true that never happened.
