What currently gdb tells (and any other debugger would tell) is :
No symbol "Item" in current context.
Once the appropriate entries are implemented in the debugger symbol
table, it will behave like it does in similar conditions, i.e.
displaying a value referenced by a pointer. I didn't mention in my ToDo
list because I'm a bit lazy, but this too has to be done.

It's not different from the declarations:
where your declaration only reserves a pointer, while the actual string
or object will be instantiated only at run time.
Item is a variable, whose location isn't known at compile time, but will
be known only at run time.
