Debugging X.org drivers?

Has the situation changed somewhat from the XFree86 days with debugging
the loadable modules in the server using GDB? I am still stuck on Red Hat
7.3 to have a working GDB that will debug loadable modules, and I want to
move my X development box up to Fedora Core 2. Unfortunately I just tried
my old GDB 6.0 patch under x86 and it crashes as soon as it tries to do
something with the module (hit a breakpoint or whatever).
Strangely we used this about a month ago for our port to x86-64, and it
ran fine with GDB 6.0 on x86-64 and Fedora Core 2.
Is there a better patch for a later GDB that works on x86 versions of
Fedora Core 2? If not I suppose I can try to debug the current patch and
then try to port it to GDB 6.2.1.
