One possible cause of what you are seeing is if you are running the debugger with elevated privileges. This might occur if you are running the debugger using sudo or su, or if the file permissions for the debugger executable(s) have been changed so that they have the setuid or setgid bit set.
You could check the setuid/setgid issue by running
ls -l /opt/pgi/linux86-64/10.2/bin/pgd*
and checking for the letter 's' in the file permissions. There should only be rwx permissions for these files on Linux.
On Mac OSX the executable "pgdebug" is run using setgid "procmod" permissions, but this is not required, nor desirable, on Linux.
