Re: gdb 7.8 consistently fails to run executable - error is

I am running into the same issue.
My path is stripped down as far as possible:
$ echo $PATH

But still no cigar.

$ gdb

Reading symbols from

Starting program:
[New Thread 30016.0x7544]
dll path too long

strace revealend nothing.

Unfortunately MinGW's gdb doesn't work for other reasons, so I am back
to printf :-(
