I was running gcc-g++-3.4.4-1, and was running into the same problem of a
std::string allocating memory in a different DLL described here:
So I update to 3.4.4-2, and yes it fixed the problem for the standard tools.
However, it did not fix the problem for "-mno-cygwin" compile option
specifying to link with the mingw libraries, and the now old, mingw
specific, libstdc++.a. So, I need to upgrade my gcc-mingw-* packages to fix
the problem, however they have not been updated to the latest version in the
Could someone please upload matching gcc-mingw-* packages that contain the
fix applied to 3.4.4-2?
Updated binary packages is of course the ideal. In the mean time, I
attempted to build updated packages myself, however I found that the
gcc-mingw-g++-20050522-1-src.tar.bz2 package does not meet the source
package description described here:
As the supposed source tarball inside it does not contain source files. It
only contains executables, libraries, and headers. It also contains an
un-usable configure script, and no build script. This may be ignorance on my
part as I've never built a cygwin package from source before, but I could
not get it to do much with the files provided.
I've given up now that I need to download the proper gcc-g++ source package,
apply the same patch applied to cygwin's 3.4.4-2 version, and attempt to
compile it for gcc-mingw.
