Open lazarus.lpi and press F9 - this is what I do. It does not recompile 
anything (well, last month it recompiles codetools sometimes) - just 
launch another IDE in the debugger.

Yes. It would be nice to have attach to process debugger command 
available in the IDE but currently lazarus does not have it althout gdb 
supports this and debugs rather well.

Opening lazarus.lpi and press F9 :)
