Hmm, we have been bit by that recently elsewhere:;a=commitdiff;h=ff68b256a533b398e3420750f34d161aeee4e099

I suspect what you are looking at is not at all mingw-specific but will
soon start showing up on other x86 platforms.  I see from the bug report
that that's gcc 4.7.0, which hasn't made it into most distros yet but
surely will soon.

-ffloat-store is a brute force solution, I think, and would affect old
versions of gcc that don't exhibit any problems.  I would suggest
altering configure to see whether the compiler recognizes
-fexcess-precision=standard and adding that to CFLAGS if so.
