I don't know. It couldn't hurt but I'm afraid it would take some luck to 
get useful informations from only that.

What would really help, IMHO, would be if someone who faces this crash 
was familiar enough with msys/mingw to start the program from gdb and 
see what happens there. I couldn't reproduce the problem and I suppose 
you don't either.

For now, the most useful information is the trace file attached to bug 
#52825 that seems to show that the crash is in the GL initialization, 
after loading the fonts but before loading the textures.

A further, more accurate, report probably could be obtained by using 
this tool: https://github.com/dtrebilco/glintercept. I checked it and 
have a log of the expected calls sequence.

At this stage we could add assertions or other debugging code between 
the last good call and the first missing one, or maybe the bug will 
stand out.
