Noted, I'll consider the test version broken for now.



Meantime I examined the testcase with gdb: The DLL exports a bogus address for the symbol "_ZTIi" ('typeinfo for int'). This results in this more simple testcase:

#include <typeinfo>
int main() {
  const std::type_info & ti = typeid(int); // &_ZTIi from DLL
  const char * p = ti.name(); // segfaults because &_ZTIi is bogus.
}


And indeed, the export table of the DLL looks 'interesting'. The offsets of various exported symbols are apparently all 93980000:

$ objdump -p cygstdc++-6.dll

$  objdump -p cygstdc++-6.dll | grep -cw 93980000
759


Hmm... bug in the (bin)utils used to build the DLL?
