Debugging emacs

before I'll ask a bigger audience, I ask here:

As some of you know, emacs dies, when started to open it's own
X window on Linux/MIPS. While trying to debug emacs with gdb,
I found out, that emacs kills it's own .mdebug section when it dumps
(it inserts a new .data section, which kills all references in
the .mdebug section).

Now I'm looking for a way to start a X session with temacs, which has
a working .mdebug section. I'm able to do a temacs -l loadup, which 
will give me a "normal" looking emacs. But I haven't found a way to get 
temacs to create a X session.

Any hints ?


See, you not only have to be a good coder to create a system like Linux,
you have to be a sneaky bastard too ;-)
