Am I using dumper.exe correctly?

OK, so I tried reconfiguring without --enable-threadsafe and
--enable-extra-threadsafe-checking.  It's faster, bug gdb still
crashes when I try to use it to look at an exe and core file produced
by dumper.

No, that coredumps too.

Version 1.3.6-6 of the cygwin package (although I've actually built
the DLL from the repository -- I'm telling you the version of this
package I'm using so you know which dumper.exe I'm using) and version
20010428-3 of the gdb package.

Do I need to update dumper.exe from the current repository along with
cygwin1.dll, or is it safe to use dumper.erxe from the cygwin 1.3.6-6
