I don't have the sawfish-dbg package installed, but I'm guessing that
installing sawfish-dbg places the debugging information (line
information, variable locations, etc. etc.) someplace where GDB
magically knows to look for it.  This has several benefits--easier
packaging, debug vs. normal packages don't stop on each other, etc.
