I suggest something like this:

gdb kdevelop
(gdb) run -s <your session>
# wait until everything has finished initialization
# i.e. just before you are about to run your application
# interrupt GDB by pressing Ctrl + C in the CLI, then type:
(gdb) set follow-fork-mode child
(gdb) continue
# now launch your process via kdevelop

It should crash again and you should have GDB notice that. You can then get a 
backtrace via

(gdb) thread apply all bt

Please do look into this - it is potentially a grave issue somwhere. So do 
look at the GDB steps above, and do test some other applications to see if 
they are affected too.
