Debugging mingw applications using wine

I'm trying to debug a windows .exe built with mingw using wine, but 
winedbg seems to have problems reading stabs from the mingw-built 
binary. My goal is to be able to debug a cross-compiled, native Java 
(GCJ) application, but even a simple C "hello world" seems to cause 

My cross-build environment consists of:

- mingw-runtime-3.5 and w32api-3.1from - I just used the 
pre-built binaries
- stock binutils 2.15, configured with --target=mingw32
- CVS head gcc 4.0, configured with --target=mingw32

WINE is from

$ mingw32-gcc hello.c -o hello-mingw.exe -g

$ wine ./hello-mingw.exe
Hello World

$ winedbg --gdb ./hello-mingw.exe
0000000a:0000000b: create process 'D:\tests\hello-mingw.exe'/0x77bd003c

I've attached the mingw-compiled C binary. Is it worth trying again with 
a newwer WINE? Thanks!
