there are several unrelated errors/issues you need to fix first.

that's the first issue. Your a.exe app is a CUI app. You first need to 
set wineconsole to make it work (basically it doesn't find a fixed font 
with decent size). It's been a while since we hadn't gotten this error...
and the rest of the debugging session fails because your debuggee needs 
the console up & running (and dies prematurely)
this should work ok even without the --no-start flag

> gdb a.exe
gdb doesn't know nothing about windows application. You should run it 
with gdb wine-pthread (as I assume your system is -pthread)
However, if your a.exe has been compiled with a win32 compiler, you 
won't get any symbol from it (except if the compiler is mingw)
