Are you using gdb -nw?  And, I assume you've built a DLL with -g.

There are multiple lines of source below.  I guess that this does isolate
things in terms of all of the Cygwin DLL but why didn't you report the
specific line where it is dying???

I have no idea why your source is not being printed.  I do this every
day.  Possibly you need to use the directory command to add a source
directory for searching.

That would normally be the sign of two different cygwin's being executed.
Otherwise, is it possible that this the code is being forked from a thread()?
