Probably not free as in freedom; I haven't used them.

Using cygwin's gdb on a MinGW app, I can set this breakpoint
on the function that invokes main(), and then examine variables
before main() is invoked. For a Cygwin app, I guess you'd break
on 'mainCRTStartup'. Does that breakpoint happen early enough to
meet your needs?
