You need a non stripped version of the Cygwin DLL and gdb. The
non stripped version is easily produced by downloading the sources
from cvs as descibed on and following
the directions given on the same side.

You (and others having that problem) could do me a tiny favour,
please. Please download the latest developers snapshot from and try that DLL instead of the
official 1.1.7. If it suddenly works - good for me. If not, please
send a stacktrace  to the mailing list if available.
