You'll need to follow up on the make-w32 mailing list for this.  There
have been a number of changes to the W32 code between 3.80 and 3.81, to
support MINGW and OS/2.  It's quite possible that this is a regression;
if so obviously we'd like to see a fix before 3.81 is released.

However, these ports are all supported by volunteers: I don't have the
ability to debug them (as I don't own any systems running Windows) or do
anything more than give them a cursory examination for obvious issues.
