Almost got it working  tested in Win32, I think there is something weird 
in my Compiler options (Or linking), got simple files with the 
addresses, still got the :

Reading symbols from c:\MyProg.dbg...done.
No current source file.
No current source file.
No current source file.
No current source file.

as result from the Gdb...

Any ideas, I try somethin on my end...
