Re: svnserve -X doesn't really work

That was my second attempt, but gdb-6.6 doesn't seem to break at my breakpoints.

gdb svnserve (inside emacs)
(gdb) break main

Meanwhile the svn import has finished successfully. It either never
calls write (not likely) or gdb didn't manage to honor the breakpoint.
 In fact, I can't get it to break on 'write' even if I debug svn
import NEW file://...

It's been a while since I tried to debug threaded programs with gdb.
I'm probably forgetting something basic. Maybe some kind of dynamic
loading weirdness.
