Debugging anything within emacs is thus completely impossible at this

cgf has already stated that this will be fixed in the next release of gdb; see

Sorry, must have missed that one. Thanks for pointing me at it.

In the meantime, can't you use gdb 7.3.50-1? If you also have problems
with that release, please send detailed instructions for reproducing
the problem (starting with emacs -Q).
No luck:

$ cygcheck -cd | grep gdb
gdb 7.3.50-1
libgdbm4 1.8.3-20
$ emacs -Q -nw
M-x gdb
Run gdb (like this): gdb

That's your problem. You've deleted `--annotate=3' from the prompt emacs gave you. emacs-23 needs that to be there. M-x gdb works fine for me like that, using both gdb 7.3.50-1 and 7.3.50-3 (which is now available). I tested with Cygwin 1.7.9 as well as with the latest snapshot.
