Hi Ralf,

Oops, I glanced over the thread index for the patches list but missed that conversation.

If you have time to produce a patch to this extent for the system(s) you
can test, that would be great!  If not -- could I ask the favor to test
a patch on your systems?  I will try to produce one by next week unless
anyone beats me to it.

I can provide a patch for the specific cases that gave me trouble if that's good enough. And I can test a patch that you create. But first I want to get the benchmark thingie finished. Hopefully later today if nothing unexpected happens.

Another question: How did you find those bugs?  I.e., were they exposed
by the Libtool testsuite?  If not, how can we trigger them?

I just configured and built glib-2.6.3 (from on Cygwin with
export SHELL=/bin/sh
export CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh
export lt_ECHO='printf %s\n'

I don't know if it happens with the testsuite. I did start it after building Libtool but must admit I got impatient and didn't let it finish. I didn't run it with sh (ash) either. But I will try to do that soon.

Anyway, the problems I experienced are in Win32-specific code paths, so you need to run under Cygwin or similar to reproduce them.
