As far as I know this doesn't exist. Nevertheless this can be done via an gdb 
config script, ok this is not a point and click way, but surely better then entering 
every debugging session the same things.
To get this work, I've done the following: In Project -> Project Options -> 
Debugger I've selected a special directory for gdb, in which a script named 
"gdb" can be found. In this script there's only this command:
> #! /bin/bash
> /usr/bin/gdb -x gdb_config "$@"

Where gdb_config is my GDB config script, of course. This works very well for 
me :-)
