This error seems to be very specific for cygwin and cannot be confirmed on other platforms. The additional arguments are not specified. There are no additional hints about the error.

May be duplicate of #25627 (http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?25627)

Installed DDD for Cygwin last night. When using the Execution Window feature. The executing program receives additional arguments which I am pretty sure are not supposed to be there.

Chiefly the redirection arguments to the Window's TTY are sent to the program via argc/argv. And they appear before the arguments supplied by "set args".

I am newish to debugging for Nix targets. But I ran some tests from outside DDD and even when supplying such args they did not appear inside the program. Which is to say the shell filtered them out properly.

PS: This bug tracker needs to be more prominent on the http://www.gnu.org/software/ddd/ webpage. It's easy to get the idea that the DDD mailing list is the only way to submit bugs. If that's how bugs are going to be raised in the 21st century I think most people would not bother, and opensource will languish. Web software efforts are a little bit better. OS projects need to modernize ASAP.
