Both works - the way you choose depends on how fast do you need the
answer :-) - IRC is usually faster, OTOH asking on the ML can teach more
people how to do things.

Just one more thing, the 'gdb' way works only when you are on Linux ;-)
- on Windows you have to use the MSVC debugger.

So provided that you are on Linux, just go to the subdir where you have
installed your LO, do

gdb ./soffice.bin

and continue as Lionel advised.  More about debugging is here:

Hope that helps,
