I havent tested it my self, but I recall someone saying they had done 
it. IIRC by using a starter app, via run  params.

apparently (on win it requires at least gdb 7.2 or 7.3 (not sure). GDB 
can set the breakpoints before the lib is loaded, and gdb does then set 
them on load.  (NOT sure if you can use "openlibrary").

It's on a long list of things that I want to test.
