Probably the best person to answer this is Jacob Navia
<>, the author of the interesting lcc-win32, a
minimalistic compiler for the Win32 API.  He's been involved with
Win32 debugging and probably has considered the problem you mention.

However, he'll probably tell you to forget GDB. :-)
(Sorry Navia, i couldn't resist. :-))
