Thanks for the test case!

I tried this on Linux with gcc 2.96 and it worked ok.  I tried it with a
cygwin cross compiler built from the gcc cvs trunk and it worked ok.  It
failed, as we know, with the cygwin release of gcc 2.95.3.

I wonder if there is a patch in the 2.95 tree that could be applied here.
