thanks Axel, for digging out the instructions for adding the debug
information. It was a while back since I last installed gdb!
@ karl. there are no 'junior' members of the team. Your being prepared to
hunt a bug mean that you are a 'full' member. This is a comment I have to
make time & time again. There are no dumb questions... just people too dumb
to ask! If PCMan had the patience to teach me, a wiki / doc person, how to
use gdb - you have no worries :D
Thanks for your continued support,
