Specifically, it was 
XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-44 && cygwin1-200402[05-18,21].dll fails.
XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-44 && cygwin1-1.5.7-1.dll succeeds.

In addition:
XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-46 && cygwin1-20040221.dll fails.
XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-46 && cygwin1-1.5.7-1.dll succeeds.

But gdb also fails to start on the box with the cygwin1-200402[05-18,21].dll,
making this problem somewhat difficult to track down.
