setup.exe version 2.872 (32 bit) breaks vim on winxp

Vim won't start after perfomring an update with the latest setup.exe. I do 
echo $? and it shows it exited with 127.

This person reported 
he was able to fix the issue by installing clear.exe via the ncurses 
library.  I checked and indeed I am missing clear.exe, I then installed it 
by installing ncurses, I now have clear.exe, but vim still refuses to 
start and still gives code 127.

Emacs starts fine.

I do strace vim and get a window popup vim.exe Entry Point not Found: The 
procedure entry point sigalstack could not be located in the dll 
--- Process 3084 created
