The set command only works for simple types (integers, booleans,
chars). Anything more should probably be implemented using a higher
level wrapper on top of GDB (such as Lazarus), although on i386 this
will require regcall support in GDB first so that the RTL helper
routines can be called properly (and my patch for that to GDB is on
hold since it seems that the FPC implementation will have to be
changed for Delphi-compatibility, see http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=15691)
