I think gdb doesn't support debugging python programs.
You could use the python debugger module pdb. Then in the prompt type 
"r" to run nicotine:
python -m pdb /usr/bin/nicotine
(Pdb) r

You can make strace -f /usr/bin/nicotine as well but it will produce a 
huge output and you'll have to attach it as a text file. Try the python 
debugger first.
