I see, thanks. If I interpret this correctly, then the same code is
loaded twice. Once in the program to be debugged, once for the printer.

Now I have the following problem: The ADT I want to print uses an
external C library. Ocamldebug refuses to load it, saying: 
(ocd) load_printer ../smath/libsmath.a
Error during code loading: ../smath/libsmath.a is not a bytecode object

Any ideas?
