Originally, I enabled the 'gdb traces' by default because DSF-GDB
was becoming the new default debugger for CDT, and I wanted to make
it easier for us to deal with potential issues quickly.

Now that things have gone pretty well, it may not be as important.

Does anyone else feel it would be more user-friendly to hide those
traces by default?
