It's true that someone using STL strings has the potential to see this bug
but I doubt there are allot of template libraries out there pulling the same
memory trick or doing so with the same catastrophic results.  In addition,
this is not the first time this has come up as an issue (for Cygwin or other
platforms) in one form or another.  Here's a good reference:


There they recommend the "--enable-fully-dynamic-string" flag as a solution
for this particular problem but I agree if the "-frepo" will solve this as
well, it's better because it manages templates better overall and aligns
with Linux behavior.
