What I think Neil means to say is that it's a good idea, but it won't inhibit 
the debugging of -your- code.  It might be not as easy to look into variables 
defined in noatun, though.

Also, if you have a slower machine, your debugging may be faster if you set 
the environment variable LD_BIND_NOW=1 .

If you really like KDE apps, I swear by kdbg. While it's lacking a lot of 
useful features, it still certainly is quite a convenient and nice app.

I've also noticed that gcc 3.x is incredibly and extremely bad at C++ 
debugging.  I've seen it have trouble set breakpoints in constructors, and 
have trouble looking at variables that are instanciations of templates.

have fun!
