Am I using dumper.exe correctly?

Is it possible that gdb has problems with the new, Paul-Sokolovsky-style 
auto-importable DLLs?   Hmmm...using dllhelpers-0.2.6 (pre-auto-import) 
and dllhelpers-0.2.9 (post-) and running gdb on the test executables 
should answer that question.  I'll try to run that simple test later 
this week if nobody beats me to it...
