I don't think the cygwin FAQ should tell people how to debug.

My intent for the FAQ was only to mention that normal cygwin DLLs do not
contain enough information for a backtrace to be useful.

I do not want to imply that we will help people debug either the cygwin DLL
or their applications in gdb.  I was just hoping to provide some clarification
to people who already know about gdb but do not know that the cygwin DLL
is stripped.

Joshua, do you think you could rejigger the entry to just say something like
the above?  It doesn't have to be a long entry and it doesn't have to
try to help people run the debugger.
