GDB provides facility [a limited one] for debugging threaded programs.
It will automatically notify you when a new thread is created.
To view the threads u can use the command "info threads"
To avoid scheduler switching, u can set lock on scheduler using the command "set scheduler lock on"
To forcefully switch to a thread u can use the command "thread <thread no.>" where thread no is obtained by the "info threads" command.

The Valgrind distribution includes five tools: two memory error detectors, a thread error detector, a cache profiler and a heap profiler. Several other tools have been built with Valgrind.
Try valgrind
