Re: run.exe fails to start XWin on Windows 8.1 through the shortcut

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.
