These all seem to be GDB commands.  The command that I gave above is for
the windows command shell.  It instructs cygwin to invoke a program when
a fatal signal is encountered.

Unless we want to start documenting things like "How to use ulimit" in
the gdb manual, I don't think it is necessarily appropriate for us
to mention the setting of environment variables for cygwin.
