Debugging on Eclipse


I have two related questions related with debugging on Eclipse:

1. I want to integrate IDB compiler to my Eclipse project.
In order to do that, I have installed required plugins (Intel C++ Compiler XE 2013, Intel Debugger for Applications). I want to debug opencv library, so that I have imported a project generated by cmake. By using project settings I have set Debugger to Intel Compiler. You can see my debug settings on image attached.
The problem is that: Whenever I try to debug an application inside opencv library, the following error occurs: An internal error occurred during, java.lang.NullPointerException. You can see error message on uploaded picture.

Before invoking eclipsei I run following commands:
source /opt/intel/bin/ ia32
eclipse &

2. Debugging with IDB is not a mandatory for me. But tries with gdb have some inconsistent behaviours hence debugging cannot be done. The problem is that, when debugging starts, all things are well. But when I place a breakpoint, program hangs at a different point, ie. hangs on a point which has not a breakpoint defined there. Debugger never hits to place where I have placed a breakpoint. I know that icc and gcc are compatible, hence debug information generated by icc should be fine for gdb. But I don't know why this happens.

Information about used software:
