There are multiple possibilities.  Many Cygwin packages have
Cygwin-specific patches to compensate for either upstream non-portability
or Cygwin's idiosyncracies.  It's also possible that you just need to
re-run configure for the newer version, as the old run may not have picked
up the right libraries due to your installation mishap.  Did a clean build
fail for you too?  Do you get the same problems when setting TERM to
something widely used, e.g., "ansi" or "xterm"?  Do you get the same
problem in rxvt?

Alternatively, something may have indeed changed in either CGDB or Cygwin
that caused a bug to manifest.

I think at this point we veered off the original topic of this thread...
