I'm assuming you are doing local, native debugging (that is, "run").
GDB should load symbols for whichever one your program is actually
using. A common problem is that GDB uses a shell to start your
program; check that it isn't changing the search paths. If GDB
is not loading the same one the program is using, please show us a
complete transcript of the debug session.
