I was able to reproduce this from the mingw command prompt.

A fix has been committed per the suggestion from Jeremiah Willcock,
and it worked when tested locally. A off schedule daily snapshot is

able to try it yourself. Please report results.

Thanks for the report, and thanks to Jeremiah for his fix suggestion.
