		Guys, I didn't make any snide remark nor did Tim to be fair. My original post queried which process I should attach GDB to.
Tim replied saying those were not processes that I had listed but symbols hence the line in question
>> did you ever have a look at m_pd.h?
I hadn't really and replied to this appropriately. 
There were no snide remarks intended as far as I am aware. 

Still can't get the bugger to set a break point though. GDB was helpfully in that once PD died I could at least the back trace.

Any reason for this snide comment?  Of course I've seen those  
functions, but never in the context of connecting gdb to the pd process.

How about saying something productive instead?
