Hmm.  Did you install the cygwin-debuginfo package?  If all else
fails, try `addr2line -e /usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/cygwin1.dbg'.  I get

  $ $ addr2line -e /usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/cygwin1.dbg 1800429F4

I can reproduce the issue but it's tricky to debug.  The exception
occurs in the forked process and GDB can't follow fork on Cygwin.

Btw., can you create an emacs which is built without optimization
and non-stripped this would simplify debuigging a bit...
