IME, loading DLL's is slow, compared to loading ELF's. Even without GDB, though it obviously makes things worse. I guess that's due to position-dependent code, which breaks demand paging, and immediate (non-lazy) binding.

That's why VLC has a plugin cache. This was literally added for Windows. VLC should not be loading that many DLL's out of the box with a clean cache.

And I always debug using RC, unless the bug involves the GUI. Qt slows debugging down on all OS's.
