It doesn't have to be "weird", it can be as simple as some antivirus
software or some other such stuff, they could be blocking or tweaking
cmd.exe invocations in some situations.  (Yes, in some quarters
cmd.exe invocations are considered potential security risk.)

It's possible to attach GDB to Emacs on Windows, yes.

I actually looked at the source code involved in redirecting the
standard handles of subprocesses on Windows, and saw that if
redirection fails, Emacs should signal an error.  So something morfe
subtle happens in your case.  Maybe the batch file doesn't even run?
