Debugging under Debian potato (2.2)

The XWPE debian package runs smoothly (project management and compiling works perfectly), however I can't get the debugger to work.
When I try to debug a program, the following happens (I think):
- The xterm is launched to run the program
- Xwpe mouse cursor changes to the spaceship
- Xwpe log displays some '/dev/pts' message
- The xterm dissappears
- Mouse cursor changes back
- and Xwpe displays the error message "Error loading program" when loading gdb.
However, both gdb and the program are within the PATH.
Does anyone know the cause of this problem, and maybe a solution? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
