Sorry, I am not very good with gdb (as you may have already noticed ;))

The problem in Qt3 is that there is no more "rw" member in QChar, because the 
row and the col of a Unicode char are now stored in an unsigned short named 

QChar::latin1() simply does this:

{ return ucs > 0xff ? 0 : (char) ucs; }

since we cannot call this member function, we have to find a way how to 
distinguish a Qt2 String from a Qt3 string and then write a small GDB script 
as Simon suggested to debug Qt3 strings properly.

Any suggestions welcome.
