If I remember correctly, mingw will by default use the Windows default

I once tried to get the CEDET integration tests to run under MSYS, but I
ran into similar problems and finally gave up since it just took too
much time, and I don't have to code under Windows at the moment
anyway. I'm afraid I can only tell you that CEDET runs fine with Cygwin,
albeit way, way slower (especially running autoreconf makes for a good
cup of tea, which is why the buildbot isn't running the integration
tests by default on that platform).
We would welcome any patches to support MinGW, of course. :-)
