Oh, I discover it by accident. The only problem would be that
gdb doesn't know how to dereferece pointers to objects and don't recognize
properties, in such case in command line I add a ^ operator and use
the underlaying field (if it apply) for the property. Anyway the selection
evaluation its cool. I hope some day gdb will be improved.
