Problems with gdb

Hi folks.

I'm new to this, so easy on the flames.  I am trying to get mingw32 with
egcs up and running under Win95,and so far everything is going pretty
well.  Everything compiles and runs just fine, but in *any* debugger,
particularly gdb, I get a SYSSEGV whenever I run a program, long before
the program starts.  Something in the startup code is dying.

Is this likely to be - 

        Some broken dll that I need to update?
        Some installation problem?
        A bad version of gdb (the one in the egcs 1.1 release)?
        Something else?

Thanks in advance -
