Have you tried to reproduce the problem in a command line session?

Then you should report this to either the mingw or the gdb projects.
I'm also seeing strange crashes of gdb.exe when stepping out of functions and it is quite annoying.

So you're using the older debugger and it works, but the newer doesn't?

Have you reported this to the mingw-w64 project?

I'm using GDB build myself(I am using mingw-w64's gcc compiler to build gdb), but it is 32bit GDB, and I don't have such crash issue.
If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

No, maybe it's just my problem, because no one else says that he has the same problem
gdb is crashing for me also. I've already said it.
I'm not using windows and I don't really care that much.
Probably not in the same way, but the gdb.exe in this release is not really stable.
