This does not sound like a config issue to me.

However, I have seen some Linux, or maybe some of the Destops/Window 
managers getting in trouble, if gdb pauses an application in the wrong 
moment. e.g. in a paint event, or other events (mouse, kbd).

In that case you may have to restart your  desktop session, potentially 
the entire system.
