Can you reproduce this when running the same command from cmd or
mintty? If yes, could you run it in a debugger?
Thank you, Achim & Jon.
I'll try issuing this command from cmd as soon as possible (in a few
days, hopefully, I'll get to the machine in question again) and report
here. I won't be able to use a debugger unless given precise
instructions. I'm unsure about know what mintty is (Cygwin64 text
console?), but, if I find it out, I'll also start it from mintty.
Jon is right: the initial value of t is indeterminate according to the C
standard. The compilers may (and usually will) produce an arbitrarily
weird code consistent with this semantics.
