Breakpoints in the library code

Once the dll is loaded (ie. you've run to main() or dlopen()ed), you can 
just set a breakpoint as you normally would.  If gdb can find the shared 
library, it will read the symbols when it detects that it has been 
loaded. (if auto-solib-add is set)  Newer versions of gdb also have the 
concept of a deferred breakpoint where gdb will ask if you want to make 
a breakpoint pending on a future library load.
