Thanks for the testing.

But you also said in an earlier message that GCC 3.4.4-1 didn't have
the -g bug.  Could you please try to build with that version?  If
version 3.4.4-2 is the only one to avoid, I'd like to say that
explicitly in etc/PROBLEMS, because building GCC is something most
Cygwin users will probably not wish to do.

Sounds like these are false hits, and that the problem mentioned by
Jason doesn't exist.
