This should work but depending on how large your session is you may win a lot of time, possibly even avoid deadlocks by attaching to the kdevelop session once it's fully started, has done its parsing run etc.:

%> kdevelop -s $sessionID & (or kdevelop --ps &)

Note the pid printed by the shell. Once KDevelop is idle, attach:

%> gdb --pid=$pid

Then continue with Milian's instructions:
