“-Wl,-wrap,malloc -Wl,-wrap,free” is only effective for newly-compiled
code.  Your example probably uses some template instantiations which
are supplied by libstdc++, and these will keep calling the unwrapped
malloc/free implementations.

I don't know if there are mechanisms on mingw which are comparable to
ELF symbol interposition.
