Using kdevelop and KDbg GDB seems to crash when trying to resolve a certain watch expression.
I don´t use GDB command line, so I can´t give you the exact command which lead to the problem
Get (2.5 MB) and unpack http://www.mico.org/snapshots/mico-2.3.12RC1.tar.gz 
2)./configure --prefix=/opt/mico --disable-coss --disable-csiv2 --disable-events --disable-property --disable-time --disable-optimize --enable-debug
3) make && make install
4) Start Programm:
ird -ORBIIOPAddr inet:tron:8888 --db myird -ORBThreadPool &
idl --no-codegen-c++ --feed-ir --poa /opt/mico/include/mico/poa.idl -ORBIfaceRepoAddr inet:tron:8888
5) Use KDbg, choose Programm "/opt/mico/bin/ird"
6) Open source code, /path/to/micosrc/idl/codgen-idl.cc
7) Add breakpoint in "void CodeGenIDL::emit_idl_type( CORBA::IDLType_ptr t )" at "    switch( tc->kind() ) {" (should be line 1520)
8) Watch expression "tc->CORBA::TypeCode::kind()"
9) Attach to process
10) kill process on cli and continue to breakpoint in debugger
11) gdb session will terminate
