According to gdb docs, gdb should. in fact the command for gdb to 
disable it (even on win) refers to "so"  set auto-solib-add mode  (the 
IDE does NOT do that)

THough there are commands to add so files by hand to. Not yet done by 
the ide

on win gdb does load some info from dll (I saw crashes because of it). 
but that is dll that are loaded autmatically.

Itmay not work, if you load the dll in your code with openlibrary
