[R] Problem with GDB: Cannot find new threads

I tried to run GDB with R to debug one my program.
After running R (R --debugger=gdb) and my program, GDB crashes saying:

[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
Error while reading shared library symbols:
Cannot find new threads: generic error
Cannot find new threads: generic error

Has anyone ever encountered this kind of problem using GDB with R ? I
saw this GDB error on internet in other contexts but never with R, and
there seems to exist no general solution.
Thanks a lot
