When it segfaults it should produce some output as well as a
bash.exe.stackdump file.  What is the exact output of opening a command
prompt and running "x:\whatever\path\to\bash.exe -xc
/etc/postinstall/some-postinst-script-that-fails.sh"?  Can you reduce it
down to a simplest testcase that segfaults?
