I don't at the moment have access to an NT PC with matlab on, that you could
access remotely, although thank you for the kind offer. 

Would it be straightforward to run it through the debugger myself?
I'm afraid I have no experience atall of Cygwin debugging.

Yes, and in fact, without the POSIX functionality, gcc is of little use
to me with matlab (I have VC++ for example).

Thanks again,
