idb discontinued, but mpiexec doesn't know

I've read somewhere that idb was being discontinued. Yet it is still possible to ask for it through the various flavour of mpiexec:

[alainm@tagir test]$ which  mpiexec mpirun mpiexec.hydra
/softs/intel/impi/5.0.1.035/intel64/bin/mpiexec
/softs/intel/impi/5.0.1.035/intel64/bin/mpirun
/softs/intel/impi/5.0.1.035/intel64/bin/mpiexec.hydra
[alainm@tagir test]$ mpirun -idb pwd
mpiexec: IDB_HOME is not set
mpiexec: idb -pid 21681 -mpi2 -parallel mpiexec.hydra
sh: idb: command not found
^C[mpiexec@tagir] Sending Ctrl-C to processes as requested
[mpiexec@tagir] Press Ctrl-C again to force abort      <-- même pas cap!
^C^C
^Z
[1]+  Stopped                 mpirun -idb pwd
[alainm@tagir test]$ kill -KILL %1

[1]+  Stopped                 mpirun -idb pwd
[alainm@tagir test]$

  ** de même que mpiexec, mais différemment:

[alainm@tagir test]$ mpiexec -idb pwd
cannot find "idb" in your $PATH:

The expectation with the latest compilers is that you install gdb-ia as suggested.   I don't know whether Intel mpirun should have a "-" option for it, in case you don't wish to run "mpirun gdb-ia ...."

Are you suggesting that -idb should try gdb-ia if idb isn't found, or maybe -gdb should try first to run gdb-ia?

gdb-ia is most likely to have an advantage over gdb when working with ifort.

I am just suggesting that,idb being discountinued, mpiexec -idb ... should indicated that it is discontinued or that the -idb option should be removed.

NOte that running mpirun gdb-ia a.out does not work for me.

No symbol table is loaded.  Use the "file" command.
