I can reproduce this but while it's clear *where* it happens, it's
unclear *when* and *why* it happens.

It only occurs if mintty is the first process in a process tree.  I.e.,
when starting mintty from a shell running in a DOS window, the problem

Worse, the problem also disappears when running mintty under gdb.

(I do not understand _exactly_ what you say here)

Uhm, if I invoke "gdb /usr/bin/mintty" (so, from the "Dos box") the problem
does NOT disappear.

That is:

2 threads are created ... and that is it; no MinTTY window showing up!

(hint: my system is a bit more peculiar than yours)
