The short answer is a gdb bug / feature. It's something to do with having
breakpoints or watchpoints set in shared library space. Clear all your
breakpoints and watchpoints and it stops happening.

It's not nearly annoying as the gdb bug which causes gdb to break (and
eventually segv) when another program is executed whilst pthreads is in
use. This happens if you use any of the ImageMagick or printing stuff.
Makes debugging these really easy (I've filed a bug report).
