when this happens, check if gdb is still running (

Since you appear to know the options, I assume no optimization other 
than O1/ and no smart linking?

Will need some more info, please.

Do you know the version of GDB?

I am not aware of any recent changes in Lazarus, that would/could have 
caused this.
I can not tell if there is/was in FPC

- Run Lazarus with (requires recent SVN)


- Ensure it will be the first debug in your LAzarus session, or reset 
the debugger
- please open the "Debug Output" Window, from the "View" menu (VIew > 
Debug Windows > Debug output).
   Ensure you open this window, before running your app with F9
- Run your app.

Copy the content of the window and mail it (If to big for the list, 
private mail is ok)
Same for the log
