I've traced this to this fix:
This can be verified by building a i686-pc-linux-gnu -> i386-pc-mingw32 cross and
the using this to build fastjar. When you try to execute the built jar.exe on Windows,
it GPFs. If you replace winnt.c with an older one and rebuild the cross compiler, it
compiles a working jar.exe. (Mark: Ranjit knows what I mean by all of this.) Unlike
the example in PR c++/7910, we build fastjar with --disable-shared.
Mark: My original message was posted to the java mailing list:
I realize the above instructions to reproduce the bug are probably cryptic for you.
Ranjit and Mark: if you want me to help out with this any further, let me
know how. I realize that I probably haven't followed proper protocol,
haven't provided clear enough instructions to reproduce this,
have posted things to the wrong place, etc.
