Since I didn't get any response from the list, I'm just answering myself in
the hope it might benefit someone in the future.
Problem: major go-slow in GDB?
Solution: um, make sure your swap space is active. (is it listed in
/etc/fstab?, run swapon -a)
Obvious, now that I see it... not so obvious when I've got oodles of ram to
run other things (including myth normally), and never hit the hard limit
