I noticed that some programs that depend on zlib stopped working and started creating stackdumps with Windows Dev Channel build 20246.1. I could not get gdb working with zlib but I figured a workaround: I recompiled zlib with cygport using the latest gcc (10.2.0) and copied the dll over the old one. That did fix the problem.
