The long answer is that since some people have started working on (very 
preliminary) Pascal support in lldb, at some point they disabled pretty 
much all C/C++ functionality for non-C/C++ languages in lldb. With as a 
result that almost nothing works anymore if the debug information 
specifies that the source language is Pascal, and simply changing it to 
claim that the program was compiled from C or C++ (which is more or less 
what -godwarfcpp does) restores the debugger functionality.
