Yes, but I am saying it is the responsibility of libc. IOW, I am
wondering if this particular mingw environment is simply broken, and if
so, what is the status on the fix?  Could another option be to declare
the environment unworkable and tell people to upgrade?

I am not even sure if we are right to call it broken, but talking to the
mingw people might be a good next step, as they will surely have an
opinion. :)
