It only works on HPUX 11.x, sorry. I believe this is documented in 
the info docs, which I forgot to package up with the binaries. Please
visit GDB web site at , and look
at "Debugging with GDB - Running Programs Under GDB" node in the
docs for details.

btw, I finally ran the cygwin build and noticed that the balloon
popups don't work when I position the pointer on say a variable.
If it happens to others as well, it's probably a bug and needs
to be reported. Works fine on Unix boxes I've tried.
