    For those affected by this bug: please try the new versions I built for testing this issue. They are available at:

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/MinGW/Base/gcc/Version4/experimental/

    Files: gcc-try-1.tar.gz and gcc-try-2.tar.gz

    Unpack them in an empty directory, go to the 'bin' directory and run 'gcc -v'. Do they trigger the disk error?

    1) gcc-try-1.tar.gz

    It was built from 4.8.2 without modification. I did use the "identity mount" setup, which was mentioned in: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.gnu.mingw.user/42991/focus=43002

    In this build, the output from "strings" is reduced to:

     $ strings gcc.exe | grep '[a-z]:/[a-z]'
     i:/p/giaw/mingw/share/locale
     i:/p/giaw/mingw/share/locale
    

    However, they could be false positives, so maybe they don't trigger the disk error.

    2) gcc-try-2.tar.gz

    It was built with --disable-nls. The output from "strings" is now empty:

    $ strings gcc.exe | grep '[a-z]:/[a-z]'
    

    The downside is no more translation of the compiler messages in other languages, at least until this gettext issue is solved.

    Unfortunately, I am unable to trigger the bug, even though I do have removable drives on drives e: and i:.

    I look forward to the tests results.

    Regards,
    Cesar
