Hi Achim-

Thanks.  Unfortunately, the change didn't seem to help regarding my issue
with GDB.  I don't know if it matters, but I fired up an old computer
running XP.  I updated all of the Cygwin software, and tried the same test. 
It worked fine on XP, but it seems to fail on Win7, at least for me.

FWIW, I tried manually trimming the path to just:

$> echo $PATH
.:/home/Deans/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin

...

$> cygcheck -s
