I'll try :)


Set up (see .7z file, it has an exe, it's cat.exe from unxutils, but don't trust me, just get it from there :) ):
empty test.txt in folder.
Makefile in same folder with:
"cat.exe" test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt >> (27440 bytes in this example, for just the arguments).
cat.exe in the same folder.

Btw, the quotes around cat.exe seem to matter.

If I now call 'mingw32-make' in the folder, the output ends with:

test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.txt test.tx
t test.txt
cat.exe: est.txt: No such file or directory
cat.exe: tet.txt: No such file or directory
cat.exe: testtxt: No such file or directory
mingw32-make: *** [all] Error -1

Notice the mangled names there, dissapearing characters.

Hope this is a good enough setup, it's already way past bedtime ;)

Really short, it seems to make one character disappear in the argument
line at position 8k, position 2*8k, 3*8k, etc.
Yes, I use long argument lines, not my fault, using a CMake generated
make file :)

It could be possible that the called program (Java compiler) is the one
doing this, instead of mingw32-make, but for now I'm betting on the latter.
I'm willing to try to make a good testcase once I figure out where to
send it, if anyone still maintains that thing at all :D

Hope this is the right place, please let me know :)

It is the right place.  Please try to provide a simple test case for
this problem.
