What you are seeing:

- does not represent an actual problem in the pthread library
- is not an actual segfault
- is a bug/misfeature in gdb that has been fixed in CVS
- can be worked around just by typing "c" or "continue"
- has been discussed in depth, at length, ad infinitum, over and over
and over on this list numerous times in the past, so please read those
threads.  Try a google search for: inurl:ml inurl:cygwin
