There's also --gtk-debug and --gdk-debug, but I could do with a little help for what to select for those, as just giving 'all' seems a little counterproductive (for instance, "touchscreen" and "interactive" don't seem very useful here).

(Looks like --gdk-debug reports an error with 'help', despite having just listed it as one of the options.)
