I have already said I would follow it up. But the problem exists today and
shouldn't be left until we get an answer. Maybe it will take a week or a
month, or there will be no good answer at all.

All this does is issue a warning.

This problem has happened to a number of users. So far the reponse has
largely been 'fix it by hand and move on'. I think our reputation is and
ought to be better than that.

Since this would only be run under Mingw, where it does work, why does
that matter?
