gdb-20000610 and binutils-20000625

Hmm.  I see the problem.  I'd only tried this without the -mno-cygwin
(this option is fast becoming the bane of my existence).

I'll see if I can track down what's going on.

Of course, as usual, I'd appreciate any help in the form of actual debugging
of the problem that anyone is willing to perform.

By debugging, I mean "fire up gdb and use that to debug gdb.exe".
