if you use emacs you might do the following (tested in Linux, but
ideally possible in Windows too):
1) open R in emacs (M-x R) and load the *.so. At developement stage it
might be useful to use sourceCpp
2) open gdb (M-x gdb) in emacs
3) look for R session id (see "ps" command), let's assume it's 1234
4) In the gdb shell:
a) attach 1234
b) set breakpoints
c) signal 0
5) now run R commands and you'll get the debugger stop once into you code
