Since I had to copy a few files from 2.4.1 to 2.4.0 for the older version of build, I thought I need to be 100% sure that the wine crash is due to mingw rather than those few files.

So previously, both 2.4.0/2.4.1 Rgui binaries from this set crash wine:

I tried some other combos of mingw-cross.

Both 2.4.0/2.4.1 Rgui binaries from this set works OK-ish with wine (by that I mean I can so Sys.info() and sessionInfo() - obviously somebody requires 3.11 for 2.4.1 for a reason):

gcc-core-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
gcc-ada-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
gcc-g++-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
gcc-g77-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
gcc-java-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
gcc-objc-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz

binutils-2.17.50-20060716-1-src.tar.gz
mingw-runtime-3.10-20060909-1-src.tar.gz w32api-3.7-src.tar.gz

This set produces 2.4.0/2.4.1 Rgui binaries which crash wine:

gcc-core-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz

  gcc-ada-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
  gcc-g++-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
  gcc-g77-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
  gcc-java-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz
  gcc-objc-3.4.5-20060117-1-src.tar.gz

  binutils-2.17.50-20060716-1-src.tar.gz   mingw-runtime-3.11-20061202-1-src.tar.gz   w32api-3.7-src.tar.gz

As can be seen, the difference is only
mingw-runtime-3.10-20060909-1-src.tar.gz versus mingw-runtime-3.11-20061202-1-src.tar.gz .
