Here though, let me write it 5 now:

as in the past you blamed the compiler.
Yes, I discovered new information, so I modified the email subject to reflect
that. Would you rather me continue to blame the complier, or try to help
diagnose the problem?
Error report should be clear and complete;
Example above is MCVE http://stackoverflow.com/help/mcve
only links to other place are not enough.
See above - also notice carefully that example was included in my previous post
I saw the comment from Martchus
"Note that when I had been using mingw-w64-binutils 2.28 (before recent
update to 2.29) I didn't encounter this issue. I never tried 2.28.1."
So it does not seem an issue specif of 2.28
No one but you has said that 2.28 has a problem. What Martchus actually said
- 2.28 working
- 2.28.1 never tried
- 2.29 working
Have you built it ?
Or are you only asking Jon to dedicate his time ?
Hm. Last I checked I have already made at least 10 posts on this issue:
Maybe your sense of time is distorted.
Last time I had issue with cygwin binutils 2.25, I built the 2.28.90
and I verified that was solving the issue I saw.
I was not just expecting Jon to debug it alone.
Good for you, but I dont have to build anything to verify the issue - I narrowed
the problem to a single package, and tested with "Test" and "Current" versions.
"Current" works - "Test" fails.
So we could patch "Test", but since a newer version is already available (2.29),
the sane thing to do would be to just upload a newer test version and probably
bypass the problem altogether. If you want to waste your time making a build in
this case that is your business, but dont put that bad advice off on me when I
have already diagnosed the problem.
