My full source is here
but it's probably not usable as a test case. The 3 line offset is from
the first function call "App::OnInit".

It's definitely not my source since I've built my app and all the
wxWidgets library again. Also I just tried another of my apps (with lots
of wxWidgets functions) and this behaves correctly. Well that means GDB
works correct except in one case.

I can only speculate that it's because of one of the standard headers
which are unique to this program. But they are from an ordinary
Debian/sarge system. How can I detect further where the offset is introduced?
