shortly after opening this issue i removed -mno-cygwin from my 2.7.2 install and have had no issues on win7 32bit. but i understand you're hesitation.

regardless what you decide, please consider placing a summary note in the source comments as a safety net.

if you'd like me to try building a limited set of extensions to help with your decision, let me know.  i have the following mingw toolchains on my win7 32bit system:

* tdm gcc 4.5.2 - http://tdm-gcc.tdragon.net/
* mingw-w64 prefix-stripped gcc 4.5.4 - http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win32/Automated%20Builds/
* Ruben's gcc 4.6.2 personal build - http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win32/Personal%20Builds/rubenvb/4.6.2-1/

i'm not speaking for Ruben, but as he maintains https://github.com/rubenvb/MinGW-w64-build-scripts you might try cajoling him if you feel you need more test results ;)

re: re.search, understood, thanks...quick-testing.
