I would personally recomend Fedora for building GIMP for Windows. 
Building GIMP for Windows on Windows was hell last time I tried, 
building GIMP for Windows on Fedora using the quite new Fedora mingw 
toolchain is super-easy. I was able to build both git master and 
gimp-2-6 of GIMP without much trouble.

You can run your build result in Wine. To get stack-traces, install 
DrMingw, works perfect both in Wine and on real Windows.

If you are using unstable development releases it is a good idea to keep 
up to date with the releases. No one will pay much attention to crashes 
reported using old development releases.
