I don't think we can link the two issues for sure
like this...

AFAIK, no. However, this is something that almost
anyone should be able to take up since this is
a standalone package downloadable from:

and builds out-of-the-box for MinGW/MSYS with 
"./configure" followed by "make".

"make gctest.exe" builds the GC tester program that
gives a GPF for me and that I refer to in the message
you point to.
