Hmm, thank you I didn't know about cygcheck.  I am accustomed to using
ldd under linux.

$ cygcheck test.exe
Found: .\test.exe
Found: C:\cygwin\bin\test.exe
test.exe
  C:\WINNT\system32\msvcrt.dll
    C:\WINNT\system32\KERNEL32.dll
      C:\WINNT\system32\ntdll.dll

I'd love to observe the crash, but the program doesn't print the first
line and gdb makes the bug go away.

While I can't explain why it worked before, in general it's an extremely

bad idea to mix MinGW and Cygwin in the same program.  If you're using 
gcc -mno-cygwin in the build process, you should not be linking to any 
Cygwin libraries at all.

As a simple test, run cygcheck on the generated executable.  If it lists

both cygwin1.dll and MSVCRT*.DLL among the dependencies, you are almost 
certain to have problems.
