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 http://www.cygwin.com/cvs.html 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
http://www.cygwin.com/snapshots 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.
