Yes, you are right, I`m debugging an terminal application, that reads several
configuration and data files from the current directory. 
So for testing and debugging different data or configurations it would be very
annoying always to copy the binary in the specific directory.

Also for GUI applications, there might be some situations, where it is
necessary to send a specific gdb command which is not (yet) supported by the
kdevelop GUI.
