Therefore, a note to all Windows devs: when you update to revision 9

change your compiler to TDM-GCC version 4.4.1. You can just download
the .exe at the top, it contains everything that's required. You will
need to rebuild from scratch after this (btool clean).

Just to clarify, was this a change committed that now requires all win32 builds to be done with a different compiler, or is this optional for those who want to avoid the specific bugs?
