not much to report, i'm afraid ...

i followed these instructions but get taken back to the gnome login
screen (running xfce4.2) when i try to open the problem project -
henceforth, i don't really get to see any output.

so i tried piping (?) the output to a text file from the command line,
but this is all that is there when i log back in:

i've never really de-bugged anything using gdb, so maybe it's
ineptitude? thought i'd give it a go, anyway.
