So ABI breakage and DLL hell between different builds of Mingw/GCC. Well what else could it be after looking at libgcc dll's export table other than GCC exception handling? div by zero or x87 FP exception? :-) I really really wish Mingw would has MS compatible SEH. Writing Win32 compiler-portable Perl XS/C code around bad C code beyond my control using IsBadReadPtr/IsBadWritePtr is cumbersome and those 2 will never catch STATUS_ILLEGAL_INSTRUCTION for example.
