Error debugging the X server...

When using gdb I get the following error message after calling run (gdb):

"Failed to read a valid object file image from memory."

I can debug the test program just fine, but I cannot step into any of the shared X libraries, the X server in this case.

The X libs where compiled with the -g and -ggdb options.  The xlib files sizes are definately bigger than release versions.

I am new to gdb and any help would be greatly appreciated.
