mpatrol is also very useful, and gcov for code coverage...
Another good book is 'Professional Linux Programming' by Neil Matthew and Richard Stone -> ISBN:1861003013
and of course the 'Beginning Linux Programming' by the same authors -> ISBN: 1861002971
The first has a complete chapter on testing tools. well worth a read.
Amazon have them at very reasonable prices....
