0000298: Debugger can not be started if starting IDE from shotcut
As describes in section 2.6 in the OMNeT++ InstallGuide.pdf I created a shortcut from omnetpp.exe which is located in omnetpp-4.1/ide. Now, when I try to start the debugger I get an error message: 'Launching TestProject' has encountered a problem. Error creating session. Details:
Error creating session
Cannot run program "gdb": Launching failed
  Cannot run program "gdb": Launching failed
  Cannot run program "gdb": Launching failed

Only if I start the IDE from the MINGW shell the debugger works.
No tags attached.

The debugger launcher now adds the mingw/bin and msys/bin directories to the path so gdb must be able to start.
