im using mingw and as under win xp.
This is the same problem that I had with Cygwin .. nearly identical.
The issue was documented in PR492 if you want some background. I'm
currently trying to dig up what I did to fix this in December for Cygwin
and see if I can apply the same change for mingw.
im dont understand. What is pr492? (url) and where is the fix for cygwin ?
