Hi Reed,

This is usually because clang forks off a process to do the actual
work. Try executing "set follow-fork-mode child" in gdb before running

I vaguely remember that running gdb against the "clang -cc1" command
works too (sometimes), but it's so rare that something is only
clang-debuggable that I've forgotten the details.
