On the one hand, I'm sorry that blamed Emacs, but on the other hand since
the Windows version of Emacs uses MSYS, this is relevant.

For the record, you don't need MSYS to build or run a MinGW build of Emacs.

Yes, I was researching yesterday and it turns out I was wrong. The content of http://mingw.org/wiki/MSYS states that MSYS is _not_ the subsystem, as I erroneously assumed it was. I thought MinGW
was a collection of compilers which targeted the MSYS runtime. The
content of http://mingw.org/wiki/MinGW claims that its compilers
target the Microsoft runtimes.

Having said that, learning this just makes me _more_ confused. Now I wonder if perhaps the mingw-gcc outputs are somehow not using the Microsoft runtimes "correctly", leading to some kind of initialization delay. [yes, I know this has really digressed into a MinGW discussion, and for that I am sorry]

I want very much to use Microsoft's compilers to build Emacs, in order
to find out what's wrong. However, for right now I don't have the
intellectual bandwidth to chase that.

  Sorry for the confusion,
