Cygwin 1.1.0 gdb troubles

Hi, I just installed cygwin 1.1.0. and I was looking forward to playing with
Insight, but had a problem with gdb hanging when I run even the simplest
program under it.

bash-2.03$ cat trial.c
#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char **argv){
    printf("This is a test\n");
bash-2.03$ gcc -Wall -g3 -o trial trial.c
bash-2.03$ ls -l
total 8
-rw-r--r--   1 boyd     Administ      100 Apr 18 14:23 trial.c
-rwxr-xr-x   1 boyd     Administ    13179 Apr 18 14:24 trial.exe
bash-2.03$ ./trial
This is a test
bash-2.03$ gdb -nw trial.exe

(gdb) run
Starting program: /tmp/trial.exe

... and there it hangs. This happens in the gui as well.

Anyway, in the process of trying to work this out I used a find command and
this output (The redirection only hides the output from directories other
/tmp & /usr)

bash-2.03$ find / > /dev/null
find: /tmp: No such file or directory
find: /uninst.bat: No such file or directory
find: /usr: No such file or directory
bash-2.03$ ls -l /

bash-2.03$ mount
Device              Directory           Type         Flags
d:\cygwin\bin       /usr/bin            user         binmode
d:\cygwin\lib       /usr/lib            user         binmode
d:\cygwin           /                   user         binmode

Are these issues related? Could it be that the problem find is
having with the /tmp directory is causing gdb's woes?

I'm on Win2000 with an NTFS filesystem if it makes any difference.

Thanks for any help in advance,
