Thanks for your reply. I tried importing gdb.libstdcxx.v6.printers,
but couldn't succeed. Please see the following log:

$ ./gdb.exe ../../src/a.exe
GNU gdb (GDB)

This GDB was configured as "i686-pc-cygwin".
For bug reporting instructions, please see:

(gdb) python import gdb.libstdcxx.v6.printers
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named libstdcxx.v6.printers
Error while executing Python code.

You can find the GDB version also. I guess libstdcxx.v6.printers is a
python module and the above error looks like some thing is missing in
gdb initialization? Please give your comments.
