trying to debug latest release candidate of netcdf
I hit this SIGSEGV before reaching main

$ gdb .libs/ctest.exe
GNU gdb (GDB) Cygwin 7.9.1-1
Reading symbols from .libs/ctest.exe...done.
(gdb) break main
Breakpoint 1 at 0x100401171: file 
/pub/devel/netcdf/prova/netcdf-c-4.4.0-rc2/ncdump/ctest.c, line 32.
(gdb) run
Starting program: 
[New Thread 9476.0x2a88]

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
___chkstk_ms () at 
146             orq     $0x0, (%rcx)            /* probe there */

I thought it was a stack issue and I raised from 2M to 8M

SizeOfStackReserve      0000000000200000

SizeOfStackReserve      00000000007a1200

with no success.

May be it is not a netcdf bug ? Ideas what to look for ?

$ uname -svr
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 2.0.4(0.287/5/3) 2015-06-09 12:22

In addition there is a problem with gcc-debuginfo

  $ cygcheck -l gcc-debuginfo |grep cygwin.S

(gdb) break ___chkstk_ms
Breakpoint 2 at 0x100407a60: ___chkstk_ms. (5 locations)
