In general, questions about tools ported to windows are better directed
to the place where you got the tools, rather than upstream, since
windows includes its own set of porting pitfalls.

That's quite old.  Perhaps you would be interested in trying cygwin,
where coreutils 8.5 has been ported.  I have not had any problems using
the cygwin port of coreutils in running things like du.
