Update: gdb (previous version and home-built) doesn't seg fault, but is
unable to run commands under the latest cygwin emacs: nothing happens
when you hit [enter], though it usually responds to ^C and comes
the gdb prompt. A home-built emacs works perfectly (at least, with the
previous version of cygwin gdb).
Are you implying that the previous version of Cygwin gdb doesn't work
with Cygwin emacs?
On my machine, yes... though I don't remember this being a problem
before upgrading gdb the first time. YMMV.
I just found a workaround that allows M-x gdb to work in emacs with the
current gdb (7.3.50-2). Start M-x gdb and don't specify a filename. gdb
starts up fine. Then use the "file" command in gdb to load the program
you want to debug, and everything works.
I've found the problem. The crash is caused by some of the commands
that emacs sends to gdb during initialization. I've reported this in
