Improving GDB startup time with large programs

Hi,

I have a rather large project for which I would like to improve the debugging 
startup time. Right now it takes GDB a good 20-30 seconds (loading symbols 
and such, I assume) from invoking 'run' to really executing the debugged 
program.

Does anyone have info or a pointer to info on how to optimize this?

Thanks,
Nick
