That's exactly what I did say, on the tracker ticket which led to the 
release of MinGW-5.1.6.  We had to release 5.1.6 because the new 
standard for modular packaging broke 5.1.4, and 5.1.5, (which was 
intended to correct that), exposed a fatal bug which had been 
introduced in 5.1.4, but somehow gone unnoticed.
