help: dumper 1.10 not giving expected stack trace in gdb

Hi all,

I've compiled a simple C program, t.c, via gcc-3.3.1, with -g:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)

I've set CYGWIN='error_start=C:\cygwin\bin\dumper.exe'. So when I run the program, abort causes dumper to run, and I end up with a t.exe.stackdump file and a t.exe.core file.

The stackdump file contains this:

Stack trace:
Frame     Function  Args
0022FD08  6106F232  (000009E4, 00000006, 0022FD78, 0040120D)

End of stack trace

However, when I run gdb 2003-09-20-cvs (cygwin-special) on the core file, I get this:

$ gdb --core=t.exe.core

#1 0x77f5c534 in ntdll!ZwWaitForSingleObject ()
#2 0x77e7a62d in WaitForSingleObjectEx ()
#3 0x00000778 in ?? ()

That doesn't look anything like the stack dump shown in the stackdump file.

What am I missing? How can I get gdb to display the proper stack trace?

I appreciate any help you can give.
