There IS a serious problem with gdb and DLLs. I've been working with
Mumit for a long time now trying to track this one down. Apparently,
if you have more than 6 or 7 DLLs to load during startup, you get
the seg fault. I'm not sure if this is true on NT or not - I haven't
been able to build a program that needs that many DLLs on NT.
