.gdbinit config file conflict with Xcode debugging

I've a fairly huge .gdbinit (hence not copied here) in my home directory.

Now if I want to debug code inside Xcode I get this error:

Failed to load debugging library at:


Custom data formatters are disabled.

Error message was:
0x1005c5 "dlopen(/Developer/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/PlugIns/GDBMIDebugging.xcplugin/Contents/Resources/PBGDBIntrospectionSupport.A.dylib, 16): image not found" 

Actually - as posted below - the debugging still works in Xcode but the Data Formatters breaks. Moving out .gdbinit OR disabling Data Formatters does get gdb in Xcode back in a working state but it's obviously a pain (Including Data Formatters, in the first case)

Any idea as to which settings in gdbinit could cause this error in Xcode ?

Note from Reply: It's seems (from a google search) that this error might happen when linking against the wxWidgets library. Something that I'm not doing here.

Note: if needed I can provide a copy of my (long) .gdbinit

WIP: I will have a look in details at my .gdbinit to see if I can narrow down the issue
