gdb broken inside emacs (again? still?)

- Subject: gdb broken inside emacs (again? still?)
Attempting to run gdb inside emacs with an executable file name argument
(with or without --annotate=3) causes it to seg fault (no surprise,
known issue). Running just `gdb' from emacs allows it to initialize, but
attempts to load a file or indeed perform any command hang until a
double-^C cancels the attempt (reporting "C-c C-cquit"). Ironically,
even `quit' hangs, so you have to use ^D to exit. Debugging anything
within emacs is thus completely impossible at this time. I've tried with
a home-compiled gdb (same version) with no better luck. I'm building an
emacs-23 from scratch, but I'm pretty sure I've already tried that
before, without any conclusive improvement.
I know this has come up before, and that it has been "resolved" before
for me and for others, but it keeps recurring (usually whenever I
actually need to debug something) and I can't find any reliable way to
make the problem go away.
Do the latest snapshots contain changes which should fix the problem?
I'm on an win7-64 system, running the 13 Oct dll snapshot, after a
rebaseall. Relevant package versions are below (setup.exe doesn't
advertize any newer ones):
