So first, I really wonder how Win32 can possibly be so broken that enabling 
the console can make it crash in wierd locations... sounds dubious.

Second, I wonder how to ****ing debug on Windows. Especially, how do I get a 
full backtrace out of a mingw-cross-compiled VLC?

Third, I wonder how we are supposed to make a stable release when Windows 
users start testing and reporting only on the few days before the release... 
Nevermind that we announced the freeze 12 weeks ago, effective 10 weeks ago.
