Please run Emacs under GDB, and when this happens again, produce a
full backtrace and post it here.  I'd like to see if the symptoms are
similar to what Ken reported in bug #17817.

I am unable to do this because Emacs hangs when run under GDB on opening a symbolic link. Emacs hangs with a message in the minibuffer indicating that it is loading a library that is on my load-path as a symbolic link; if I replace this symlink with a copy of the file it links to, Emacs hangs on loading the next library that is installed via a symlink. If there are no symlinks on load-path, it hangs where it would normally load my desktop file, which has files open via symlinks (i.e. there is a symlink to a directory in their path). If I run `gdb emacs`, gdb gives "Error creating process /usr/local/bin/emacs, (error 5)." when I type the `run` command, but it can run emacs if I specify the name of the binary to which `emacs` is a symlink (/usr/local/bin/emacs -> /usr/local/bin/emacs-24.4.50.exe). I am running GDB 7.8 from the Cygwin package.

I'm surprised Ken did not run into this. Ken, which version of Cygwin and GDB were you running at the time?
