Thank you for the reminder about that. I had forgotten - however ion my 
main Windows machine I have the CYGWIN variable set like that all the time 
and in the VM that I tried with it is not - and in both cases cgdb seems 
to behave well on the slightly old version of the cygwin package but 
failed with the latest. So I do not think that is the issue here and I 
might live advice as to whether I can now remove that setting of CYGWIN!
