Under some circumstances, if gdb -i=mi is started and given several

I've been able to reproduce this once in a while while working
interactively (by copying and pasting the whole bunch of input lines);
in this case one can press Return to get the rest of the output. But
the problem happens consistently with the attached test case, which runs

Thanks for the STC. I had to tweak it to actually see how it was supposed
to work on Linux since only a limited number of lines from the pty were
being output. I've included the revised test case below.
I made a simple change to Cygwin which will probably cause subtle
problems somewhere down the line. At least for now it seems to make gdb
operate as expected.
I'm building a new snapshot now.
Thanks, that fixes it (as well as the emacs problem that originally led
to this report). In case there are emacs users wondering what this is
about, I've been testing emacs-24, which uses gdb -i=mi instead of the
obsolete gdb --annotate=3 used by emacs-23.
