I want to be able to set a working directory (where my test files are) so that the debugger executes the target in that directory instead.

`gdb --help` shows `--cd=DIR` "Change current directory to DIR". You 
could probably stick that argument into the "Command Line Arguments" box.

Not sure if I follow, but you could add a build command to run GDB, of 
course it wouldn't integrate with the Debugger plugin at all.
