I experienced some problems with the one integrated some months ago, so I 
switched to mingw.
The problem is still there (today fpc and lazarus cvs): launching a program 
(from lazarus) with fpc gdb nothing happens after the linking, i.e. the 
program doesn't start. Selecting mingw (without changing anything else) gdb 
Debugging with gdb is supposed to work exactly like with a C program? If so I 
can try to use it without lazarus to understand better the problem.

Bye Uberto
