No I never have.  In fact I often rely on CTRL-C interrupting the
program.  It doesn't matter whether the program is built with
-mno-cygwin or not.  In fact, I am sometimes frustrated when I actually
want the CTRL-C to be propagated to the program but then I remember
about the "handle" command.

The only time that I can think of when a CTRL-C would not interrupt a
program would be when you're running gdb under a cygwin pty or tty.  But
it's usually easy enough not to do that if you are debugging a problem.
