I don't know if it's possible with kdevelop, but with gdb we can use the
following trick to speed up debugging:
- run vlc with rc interface
- attach gdb to the running process
- launch the GUI with the rc interface (e.g "intf skins")
But once again I don't know if kdevelop can attach its debugger to a
running process, and handles threads correctly.
