I don't know what this has to do with the longjmp, but the thread

After the longjmp, emacs has finished processing the C-g and goes back
into its idle loop, in which it repeatedly calls select.
gdb doesn't normally show the threads created by select. If it did, it
would always create voluminous output. Can you infer anything from the
fact that it shows this one?
The problem with stackdumps is that the addresses only make sense
for a single version of the Cygwin DLL. If that's a self-built
version, what does `addr2line -e /bin/cygwin1.dll 610CFA77' print?
If it's 1.7.15, please install the cygwin-debug package and call
the same addr2line.
I assume the address corresponds to select.cc, line 625, but I'm
quite busy with the pthread_cancel stuff, so I didn't look deeper
into this problem.
Yes, that's correct. (I'm using the 20120516 snapshot.)

Yes, that's exactly the created thread. Do you happen to know what
kind of descriptor has been given to select at this point? Is that
a pty master side perhaps?
Based on the emacs code, I think that's right. But maybe I need to
download the source for the snapshot I'm using (or build cygwin1.dll
myself) so that I can step through the first call to select after the
longjmp and see exactly where the crash is happening.
