Debugging into qt

I'm trying to track down a bug in an app (Bookcase) that causes a 
segfault deep inside QMainWindow::show(). For this purpose I have build 
qt (3.0.5) with the -debug configure option added (to the usual options 
used to build the debian package). I've opened qmainwindow.cpp in 
KDevelop (2.1.3) and set a breakpoint inside show().

Now I can step through the main program, of course. But stepping into 
show() doesn't work and the breakpoint is ignored, too. I haven't tried 
this before, so I may be missing something entirely trivial.
