looks as I would expect.

The problem is, I cant test it myself.
I only base this, on the feedback others gave. And IIRC someone got it 
running like that. (IIRC used fink or something  instead of Macports. No 
idea if that makes a difference)

To be sure, if you copy the long app-in-bundle name, and call this from 
a terminal, then it works?

what if you call gdb from a terminal?
ggdb -i mi

and then in gdb
-file-exec-and-symbols longname
and hit return after each line?

Create a log.

you can send it, but you can also check yourself.

it should say
-file-exec-and-symbols longname
