load). Than at the gdb settings the executable for debugging is that one 
(wine-pthread or wine-kthread)
- have all the right command line parameters to invoke your winelib app.

debugger or at the debugger before the app is loaded. In kdevelop there 
is a nice settings dialog to set all these things once.
Actually one of the points of a winelib is that you can use the native
