well, winedbg can... and now everybody *SHOULD* know

start winedbg without any argument on commande line
then, use command 
walk process

you'll get a list of running processes
using the command
attach <pid>

really attaches to the running process

the only drawback of the method (compared to gdb interface) is that
the Win32 API doesn't allow to detach the debugger from a running
the only issue is to kill the debuggee (or the debugger)
