You may know this already, but you'll need to run gdb from a different
machine, perhaps via ssh.

Let the X server run start normally, ssh in from a different machine,
start gdb on its own,

then type
"attach <PID>"

where <PID> is the process ID of your running X server.

you'll need the dbgsym package for the X server, or to have compiled
yourself, as the Ubuntu packages are stripped.

-dbgsym packages are available at the following apt source:
deb gutsy main universe

Apologies if you know any / all of the above, hope you get the issue
debugged ok.
