Corruption message after updating binutils (both Cygwin/MingW)

Just for completeness... the following occurs on Cygwin64 (I don't have 
Cygwin32)

After the upgrading to binutils-2.24.51-1 and 
mingw64-*-binutils-2.24.0.0.5a026fc-1, rebuilding some my applications 
[*], I see this message (and similar for i686-pc-mingw32, 
x86_64-w64-mingw32, x86_64-pc-cygwin):

/usr/lib/gcc/i686-w64-mingw32/4.8.2/../../../../i686-w64-mingw32/bin/ld: 
i686-w64-mingw32-bounce.exe: .rsrc merge failure: corrupt .rsrc section

In any case, the executable is created and seems to work.

Reverting the binutils packages to previous version, the message goes 
away...


Ciao,
  Angelo.

[*] The command line I use is, for example,

windres bounce.rc -O coff -o ../modules/bounce.res && gfortran -Wall 
-mwindows -J ../modules ../../src/windows_interface_modules.f90 
../../src/windows_dialog_modules.f90 bounce.f90 ../modules/bounce.res -o 
bounce.out

or

  i686-w64-mingw32-windres bounce.rc -O coff -o ../modules/bounce.res && 
i686-w64-mingw32-gfortran -static -Wall -mwindows -J ../modules 
../../src/windows_interface_modules.f90 
../../src/windows_dialog_modules.f90 bounce.f90 ../modules/bounce.res -o 
i686-w64-mingw32-bounce

but the same happens for i686-pc-mingw32 and x86_64-w64-mingw32.
