bug#22301: 25.1.50; Emacs crashes while lisp debugging

Dear Eli,

I have recompiled with the latest source and using the compiler options
which you gave me, and I do not reproduce the crash (although I have
been debugging my SES bugs at length). I have recompiled with the 32bit
MinGW. However I am not sure whether the Emacs version that was crashing
(that of 2015-12-16), was compiled with this MinGW or with the 64bit

I think that it was also compiled with the 32bit, because my MSYS fstab
file date is "12-16 08:49", and the crashing emacs.exe date is "12-16
10:27". So the fstab setting (currently pointing at the 32bit MinGW
compiler) is anterior the crashing Emacs emacs.exe. However I am not
100% sure, I may well have launched the compilation earlier than
changing the fstab file, but as compiling is so long, the emacs.exe date
could however be after the fstab modification time.

In a nutshell, is there any way to know whether the crashing Emacs was
compiled with the 32bit MinGW or with another MinGW. Please note that
the `M-x report-emacs-bug' gives on the crashing Emacs the following

  In GNU Emacs (i686-pc-mingw32)
    of 2015-12-16

as was in my initial bug report.

So, where does this `i686-pc-mingw32' in the bug report come from?


PS: does TRT mean "trick 'r treat" or "Turkish Radio Television"?
