Is this with everything you try to debug, or just certain things?

Can you try M-x toggle-debug-on-quit, then interrupt Emacs with ctrl-g
during those 40 seconds and see if you get a backtrace?
Or try M-x edebug-defun on the `gdb' function, step through it, and see
what is taking the time.
Guesses: do you have a huge .gdb_history or ~/.gdbinit file?
