Not really, as these two tests are only run
if the target supports hardware watchpoints.
This means that current gdbserver from CVS HEAD
would skip that test.
Anyhow, I think that there are problems with the gdb.threads/watchthreads2.c
code with cygwin.
When run directly, this code should write a bunch of thread switches and
but I seems to freeze...
