You may be hitting command line length limitations.  I'm wondering if the
core dump happens because the truncated argument was not NUL-terminated.
Have you considered bundling arguments into a temporary file, then passing
@filename as the lone argument to ld, to bypass the command-line length
limitations?  You may also want to try mounting ld's directory as cygexec,
or trying a recent snapshot, both of which use cygwin magic to increase
the command-line length of cygwin applications.
