Actually, there've been a noises about this, but not that much. It was
a combination bug, in egcs debugging output (almost fixed) and something
in gdb (don't have a clue, and it may very well be another egcs stabs bug).
Here's a reference bug report from Xiaomao Xiao <email@example.com>:
Good news is that major problem has been fixed in egcs-1.1.2, but there's
still a few nits I just can't seem to track down. With egcs-1.1.2, you
can step into template instances just fine, but just don't try to step
into a template instance in a library stripped of debugging info.
Normally, gdb is smart enough to just step "over" these, but the cygwin
version tends to say something like "Cannot access memory at address
0x2000000". I believe egcs-1.1.2 solution will be sufficient for 90%
of the time.
