debugging ncurses code with gdb

Hi all,

While debugging ncurses code, I need to separate out GDB I/O from
ncurses I/O by:

1. opening up a 2nd xterm
2. finding its pty with "tty" or "who am i"
3. using GDB's "tty" command to redirect program I/O.

or if i'm on virtual consoles, finding the tty device rather than pty

I'm on GNU/Linux.  Is the procedure the same for other flavors of Unix?

Are there any other issues to be aware of when debugging ncurses
programs using a symbolic debugger like GDB?
