I haven't had a chance to look at this in detail.  However, I'm pretty 
certain this used to work on both Cygwin and MinGW, and at some point, 
its gotten broken.

The way to determine the correct behavior is to check what gas was doing 
the last time this didn't fail.

If you aren't in a hurry, I can at least check on these details and get 
back to you on this within a week or so.  If you are in a hurry, 
binutils as of about the beginning of 2005 should work correctly here.

(I'm the one who originally made the weak stuff work properly on PECOFF, 
and the way it was working when I was done with it should represent 'the 
right thing.')
