Remove --double option.

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce (assuming you have gdb installed):
1. Open a terminal (if necessary, navigate to the folder where you have compiled widelands) and run "gdb widelands".
2. Once gdb has loaded, run "run --double".

Expected results:
I get two instances of widelands, like when I run "widelands --double".

Actual result:
I get one working window, and the other seem to crash.

Every time I try it, it simply crashes, with a different backtrace each time. Specifying other parameters in gdb works fine, and widelands --double works fine outside gdb. It looks like it has problems handling both instances.

I normally rank crashes at least medium, but since this is only happening in gdb, I'm marking it low as it is unlikely to affect normal players.

Widelands bzr r6365 on Ubuntu 11.10
gdb 7.3-0ubuntu2

An example log. As said above, I get different backtraces each time, so this is just one of many.

This still happens with r6941.

I don't know if the problem is that it spawns a new process and that gdb isn't too happy about that or what is causing it. I can live with a Won't Fix on this one if it is hard to solve, but currently I don't really know what the problem is...

I think the --double option should be removed. It just increases complexity and causes problems. It is as easy to start the game twice without this option.

I agree. And I remeber that you volunteered to do it :)
