The problem is, you can't really debug unless the debugger is foreground, 
and while the debugger is foreground you have to figure out a way to 
telnet to the mud.  If gdb has the ability to go into a new shell, you 
could run circle, shell out, telnet from the shell, cause the crash, then 
exit the shell and you'll be in the debugger.

I highly rcommend learning the ins and outs of gdb as it will make 
segmentaion faults much less scary.
