Hi everyone,

I'm facing a small problem:

In run mode, i've configured the environment variable in order to modify 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to be able to locate the library I'm working on. This work 
exactly like I wanted. The only problem is that whenever I try to run it in 
debug mode (with gdb), gdb complains that it can't find my library. I've made 
a small test and it seems that the environment is not the same when a project 
is run and whenever we debug it.

Is it me or did I forgot to do something?

I've made a small reproductible test case that I've joined. It contains a cpp 
file that will execute a small shell script to show the definition of 
If you run it, you should have something that starts with ../
And when you debug the project, you won't have the same values.
