Yes, you need a GDB that is built for windows but has a Linux target
After starting GDB, try the command 
show osabi
it must mention GNU/Linux

Usually, I build my own GDB and I specify the target to the configure
like this
configure --targets=i686-pc-linux-gnu
or you can even have it work for both Windows and Linux by doing
configure --enable-targets=i686-pc-linux-gnu

I assume that with cygwin, you can build your own gdb.
