This may be caused by your anti-virus solution, firewall, or certain 

BitDefender is known to cause this.
Comodo firewall is known to cause this.
I suspect there may be printer drivers that cause this too, but I am not 

With some anti virus it is possible to switch to game mode, or similar.

This used to be the case for bitdefender until recently.
Now it appears, that bit defender forces itself to be load (as dll) with 
*every* application. But if entered while in gdb crashes.

There is nothing (as far as I know) that can be done in Lazarus or FPC. 
If those products, (deliberately or not) behave differently, if the host 
app is being debugged, then this is to me a fault of the manufacturer of 
these products.
Alternatively, there may be an issue in gdb itself, that causes certain 
code to rash. I have no idea, but again, it can't be fixed in Lazarus
