Sorry, I forgot.

It is strange that changing a directory has this effect, but here are
a few possibilities to work around the problem.  All of the following
possibilities assume you start from the `src' directory:

 1) gdb ./emacs.exe

 2) gdb /usr/local/emacs-22.0.50/bin/emacs.exe

 3) cd /usr/local/emacs-22.0.50/bin
    gdb ./emacs.exe
    (gdb) source /tmp/emacs/.build/src/.gdbinit

If none of the above helps get rid of the hang, try to edit the file
src/.gdbinit so that it is left only with definitions of commands
(each definition is a block that starts with "define" and ends with
"end") and their documentation (blocks that start with "document"),
and remove everything else.

No, it's a command defined in src/.gdbinit.  If you don't start GDB
from the src directory and don't "source" that file from within GDB,
this command will be unknown to GDB.

Interesting.  So without the tool bar it never crashes, no matter how
long you leave it?
