Segmentation fault with winmm library


when trying to run the following program, which uses the windows winmm

#include <stdio.h>
#include <windows.h>

int main(void)
  // a library call to make sure winmm gets loaded
  timeGetDevCaps (&tc, sizeof (TIMECAPS));

  printf("hello world\n");

  return 0;

compiled with the following command:

g++ /usr/lib/w32api/libwinmm.a -Wall -g -O0

I get a segmentation fault under gdb:

$ gdb a.exe

The problem seems to be related to the winmm library, because it disappears
when I remove the timeGetDevCaps function call in the main function.
Also, the segmentation fault happens *before* the main function is called.
A breakpoint at main() is never reached.

Does someone have a suggestion about how to debug this?

Many thanks,
