GDB crash on via eden processor

Hello, i'm having some issues while debugging a program. I am testing my program on two computers:
-A kubuntu, with core2duo cpu.
-A debian etch, with a 400MHz via eden cpu.

These are the tests i've done:

1) Running my program alone:
Kubuntu: it never crashes.
Debian: it never crashes.

2) Debugging my program:
Kubuntu: it never crashes.
Debian: gdb crashes, and my program is somehow left running with some missing threads.

3) Debugging the debugging of my program:
Kubuntu: it never crashes.
Debian: the nested gdb crashes, my program is again left running with missing thredas, and the top-level gdb catches the crash of the nested gdb. The backtrace is at the bottom of the email [1].

This means that, while my program seems to run fine alone, i am unable to debug any bugs, since gdb crashes. As a side note (in case it's of any help), gdb and my program are always run with root permissions.

I've googled but couldn't find anything relevant. Could this crash be caused by my program? Any hints on what to do now? If more information is needed, please let me know. I'm really lost at the moment, so any advice is very welcomed. Thanks a lot in advance!
