It might very well be. I also noticed the output of ldd is not reproducible.
It shows different duplicate entries when run repeatedly and the load 
address you marked is also a duplicate:

Hm, is gdb dependent on gcc? I just noticed my gcc is apparently broken:
 pc> cygcheck -c gcc

P.S.:
 pc> cygcheck -c gcc

 pc> gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
