Have you actually tried this in a directory without spaces in it? I don't
recall seeing that experiment.
Two things that I would suggest are
1) Try explictly specifying the path and extension when debugging
i.e., "gdb -nw ./foo.exe".
2) Try the test version of gdb, available when you select "Exp" in the package
installation screen when running setup.exe. I just tried this version in a
directory with spaces and it seemed to work ok. This version of gdb does
have some reported occasional memory corruption problems but I haven't noticed
them personally. That may be because I rarely use the GUI version of gdb.
