Thank you for the info.  When I added "fflush (stderr);" at
the end of the function debug_print, pp and pr commands
started to work on Windows (mingw).

But, still C-c C-n in *gud* buffer, C-x C-a C-b in a source
file buffer don't work.

When I type C-c C-n in *gud* buffer,
  "error in process filter: Unexpected `starting' annocation"
is shown in the echo area, and no command is accepted here

When I type C-x C-a C-b in a source file buffer, the gdb
prompt in *gud* buffer is erased, and any further commands
in *gud* just show the same output as "br info", and the
menu bar keep flushing.
