Well, in practice, when all else fails, ask the stupid questions.
(Is it plugged in?, etc) No insult intended.

cat << EOF | gdb bin/circle

That should:
a) invoke gdb
b) run the mud
c) backtrace the stack when it crashes
d) exit gdb to continue autorun

Other handy things:
'info locals'
'dir src'
`handle` command in general
