Program hangs on startup

Hi there,

 I would like to first thank the entire cygwin team for providing such
a great tool that saved me countless times in corporate hell.

Now, I compiled large application that I am working on from another platform
with gcc on cygwin in vista, and I found that it does not even startup properly.

Before I got a smaller version to work, but after I added in more
modules the startup time became terrible.

The program has 500 mb memory footprint, when I looked at the debug it
stopped on the first instruction in main and was running some code.

I am not able to really see what is going on, process explorer says

Otherwise, I have seen it hang in some function that I cannot remember
exactly ascii convert or something and other vista kernel functions.

Basically, I would like to know is this :

1. how can I determine where the application is spending its time, It
is doing something, but it seems to be in a buch of kernel calls.
2. where is my systrace and oprofile for cygwin that will show me the
kernel calls?
3. is there a way to do a trace using gdb on cygwin? I would like to
basically to a "nexti" a million times to see what instructions are
being executed.

please help,
