I think Graeme's point is that FPC's linkage to GDB is made up largely
of chewing gum and string as it is, so adding multi-threading does not
make any significant increase in the difficulty.

FWIW, I have been doing multi-threading on mainframes since the 1970s.
[It is called sub-tasking there.] I have never had any serious problems
debugging concurrent sub-tasks, just as I do not have too many problems
debugging multi-threaded code under Linux (today) or OS/2 (in the
recent past).

This now brings us to the idea of building a debugger more suitable to
FPC, Lazarus and the Pascal language generally.
