Re: Compiled programs fail to run from Cygwin Terminal, but work from windows cmd

With 'outside', I meant a normal run not involving gdb at all. Sorry
if I was unclear.

Yes, it's minty, and it's /bin/bash.

Out of desperation, I have added a sleep for two seconds both before
and after the printf statement. The sleep does not happen either! The
prompt is immediately back, so it's more than just 'no output', it
seems my code never even gets started. Does this shed any new light?
