"Start debugger" ? This is "Run"? or do you want the current "Start debugger"
button moved. That would require

Start debugger
Step over
Step into
Interrupt (rather than "step out". I don't use step out very often i.e not very

(5 buttons :-)

Here's the full "Debug" menu.

Start (other)         -> Examine core file
                              -> Debug other executable
                              -> Attach to process
                              -> Debug with arguments
Run to cursor
Step over
Step over instruction
Step into
Step into instruction
Step out of
Interrupt execution

What about debugger options?

Using the external debugger disables all but the Start.

Suggestions/comments anyone?

I'll probably split the Viewer for kde2 (not for this release!)
Viewers              -> Memory
                            -> Disassemble
                            -> Registers
                            -> Libraries
