Problems with debug packages on ubuntu 9.10 karmic

I have problems producing bug reports containing backtraces with all
debug symbols. Even though I do have the dbg packages installed, gdb 7
doesn't pick them up automatically, neither for an installed app like 
rhythmbox nor for a custom build of gnome evolution.
The non-stripped libraries get installed under /usr/lib/debug and I
tried to use add-symbol-file, to load the symbols. And this procedure
would only be partly successful, i.e. in the backtrace, some function
calls of a library would show nicely while others would be just the
usual '???'.

See and

Any help appreciated!
