Thanks for the info.  Actually, using KDevelop to write my code which probably 
complicates things a bit.  As for gcc, I've noticed that as well.  I just 
thought that the problem was with KDevelop (I'm using 3.0 alpha 5 on Suse 8.2 
to write my code) or that I was setting debug settings incorrectly.  Thanks 
for the tip.  I am definatly having fun.
