To debug a crash of the gui or command line program:
- Open a console window
- For the gui, run 'gdb /usr/bin/igotugui' and enter 'r' at the prompt
- For the command line client, run 'gdb /usr/bin/igotu2gpx' and enter 'r <command line args>' at the prompt
- After the crash, enter 'thread apply all bt' and append the output to a new bug report
