UWIN is far from bug free, and process invocation is one place where it
has a tendency to show up (call it `forced exposure').

What version of UWIN? Various 2.0 later betas were simply too buggy and
unstable for development work.

I suggest you provide the following (don't bother copying this list since
I doubt if it has anything to with gcc; however you *should* copy uwin
devel list):

  $ echo uname -a >> bug.txt
  $ uname -a >> bug.txt
  $ echo env >> bug.txt
  $ env >> bug.txt
  $ echo gcc -v >> bug.txt
  $ gcc -v >> bug.txt 2>&1
  $ echo gcc -c -v foo.c >> bug.txt
  $ gcc -c -v foo.c >> bug.txt 2>&1
