I think these are signs of basic incompatibilities between Cygwin and
native Windows programs: Emacs runs GDB connected to a native Windows
pipe, but the Cygwin-compiled GDB expects a Cygwin pipe, which
emulates Posix functionality more closely.

If you are debugging Cygwin programs, I suggest to install a Cygwin
Emacs.  If you are debugging MinGW programs, install a MinGW port of
GDB (available from the MinGW site).

What is "the original Emacs", and how it differs from Emacs 23?
