I guess it would have helped if I had stated this gact as a reply to the
original complaint.

Actually, Corinna and I (and DJ) are volunteers, too.  I'm personally
working on some signal and path name issues right now but performance
degradataion does bother me.  I hate tracking it down, though.

Also, Corinna is a Cygwin engineer, gdb engineer in training.  We don't
have much Cygwin-specific work at Red Hat currently so she's slowly
transitioning to gdb.
