No progress I am aware of. I switched over to 64-bit Cygwin which uses gdb-7.10.1-1 to avoid this problem.
This "request" may be related to the problem: I would like to see the autogenerated gdb line:
"---Type <return> to continue, or q <return> to quit---" to go away.
gdb pauses posting this line unnecessarily.
