you could (not tested) alternatively:
- set winegdb --gdb as the name for executing gdb
- not reset the AeDebug key
- set the executable to be the real exec (+ .so extension if run from 
the build tree)
that should work also
you would this way:
- keep all the preloader stuff, so that your memory layout is better 
(and the same than when run from command line)
- still be compatible with the segfault stuff
