I'm not sure about your first question.
1) I run my program in the debugger and go to a particular line
2) I generate a core file with generate-core-file
3) I exit gdb
4) I run gdb myexecutable mycorefile

Shouldn't I be able to continue my program from here? Instead, I get
"Program terminated with signal 5, Trace/breakpoint trap"
And I can't continue because I get
"The program is not being run."
