Nope. Actually, I don't think this is even meant to work because gdb has 
no way of mapping the address of the symbol before the DLL is loaded. 

Wonder if gdb should somehow load a DLL so that it's mapped and ready to
be stepped into ... 

Thanks for the suggestion though ... I've made do with small_printf in
the meantime, but it makes for some very tedious debugging job.
