Where is the analysis of *where* the program died?  That should be pretty
simple to show.  Look at how-to-debug-cygwin.txt for details.

Let me make this level of analysis a prerequisite for future bug reports

For extra points, a gdb backtrace will also help track down the problem.
Look at what Jonathan Kamens does to try to track down a problem.  That
would be wonderful.

For even more points, an actual patch would really make my day.
