This sounds silly, but after reinstalling the MINGW cross compiler and
compiling sid, the new binaries work as expected - and also the old sid
binaries still work. So if there is a problem, I'd assume that it occurs
Sadly, I did not check whether there were any upgrades in the mingw libraries
from the version I had to the newest in the debian repository.
So it may also be a problem in the mingw (debian) packages....
Sorry for the hassle!
At least, I'm now ready to play around with sid :)
