Does it work with the next to last snapshot? I'm just wondering
if it's a result of the exception handling changes or if it has
been introduced by an older change.
Still, do you have a simple init.el file I can use for testing, and a
method to recognize if the file has been loaded or not, even usable
by an emacs dummy?

Well, just start emacs under strace:
$ strace -o emacs.trace emacs --with-w32
This might take a long time, so be patient...
The file emacs.trace is what might give us a clue.
