Initially the lazarus interface to GDB was visual component free (no LCL 
controls). In time some some got added. IIRC, mostly dialogs. If those 
get "changed" to a notify event that part is cleaned.

IIRC there was another issue. That is that the FP ide is object based 
and the lazarus interface class based. (I never looked at the fpide 
code, so I'm not sure here)
