I usually write a mock called by a automated unit test and run it
in gdb with full debug log messages enabled.
If the first run does not reveal enough information (e.g. uhh,
what was in variable x at this and that point?), it is a good
opportunity to improve the log messages.
When using an appropriate mock, it can be simple to call the
problematic function again, even from gdb (e.g. `print myFunc()').
