Ok, I found the cause for the QString not showing up:

I checked "show static members" in the debugger config, I don't know
why, but this prevents the display of QStrings.

What still doesn't work is QMap (but I'm using CVS Head thats from Jan

The debugger frontend uses libtool to execute gdb, but then the
.gdbinit script is not read (which includes the kdesdk-scripts for
printing qstrings, qmaps and many others). Problem is: I don't know
how to change that gdb gets the -nx option :-(
