Thank you, Achim & Jon.

I'll try issuing this command from cmd as soon as possible (in a few 
days, hopefully, I'll get to the machine in question again) and report 
here. I won't be able to use a debugger unless given precise 
instructions. I'm unsure about know what mintty is (Cygwin64 text 
console?), but, if I find it out, I'll also start it from mintty.

Jon is right: the initial value of t is indeterminate according to the C 
standard. The compilers may (and usually will) produce an arbitrarily 
weird code consistent with this semantics.
