Yeah, duh.  "they" == "me".  I should have checked gdb for this since I've
already done this research once before.

If you do find that this works, then I think this may fall into the
realm of a non-trivial patch so it may be best to just tell me what
you've found rather than provide a patch - unless you want to go through
the approval process with Red Hat.

Or, you can just wait for me to adapt what's in gdb to cygwin.  I can do
tonight when I get back to a windows system.
