Update: gdb (previous version and home-built) doesn't seg fault, but is

when you hit [enter], though it usually responds to ^C and comes back to
the gdb prompt. A home-built emacs works perfectly (at least, with the
previous version of cygwin gdb).

Are you implying that the previous version of Cygwin gdb doesn't work with Cygwin emacs?
On my machine, yes... though I don't remember this being a problem
before upgrading gdb the first time. YMMV.

I just found a workaround that allows M-x gdb to work in emacs with the current gdb (7.3.50-2). Start M-x gdb and don't specify a filename. gdb starts up fine. Then use the "file" command in gdb to load the program you want to debug, and everything works.

See if that works for you.
