the .gdbinit problem can be easely solved.
kdevelop runs gdb with the switch -nx preventing input from .gdbini files.
Possible workarounds are:
1) eliminate  -nx in the calling instruction ( file
languages/cpp/debugger/gdbcontroller.cpp) and recompile the source. Or
2) put a script named gdb containing something like:

#! /bin/sh
/usr/bin/gdb  $1 -fullname -quiet  # put here your options

in some_directory
in kdevelop's menu select  Project->Project Options...->Debugger
in the field "Path to gdb" write: some_directory
