I've had this happen on a number of occasions, and never quite figured
out why... One of two things usually helps:

1. Set a breakpoint in main.cpp and see if gdb can stop there. Then just
click continue to the next breakpoint where you actually want to
interrupt (this is a gdb problem - sometimes you have to set a
breakpoint higher up in the execution stack or gdb will miss. don't ask
me why :))

2. Try restarting KDevelop (I think it sometimes has to do with an old,
stale gdb process... not sure)

Good luck,
