if you compiled using cygwin you can use  gdb  in cygwin. now my knowledge
of gdb is very limited, but i usually do the following.

using cygwin
cd /yourmuddirectory      the one with configure in it
gdb ./bin/circle                or whatever the exe of your mud is called

make your mud crash go back to cygwin and type bt, that will give you a
rough idea of where its crashing, and the fabled backtrace for the gdb
if you can not solve the problem yourself.
