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.
