I don't have an answer for you, John. On my system, I get a different error.

I set up a graphical app with four buttons; one each for Debug.Begin, Debug.Start, Debug.Stop, and Debug.End.

Debug.Begin returns the appropriate PID and creates the two named pipes. But when I execute Debug.Start, I get: "Unable to open 
fifo". Perhaps I don't fully understand how gb.debug should work.
