Add a sleep(60) early in the main function, rebuild, start fetchmail,
then attach gdb to the running process from another console window,
using the pid of fetchmail as second parameter.  Then set a breakpoint
to the next line after the sleep and continue.  This decouples the
console handling of fetchmail from the console handling of gdb.
