Gives the correct result.

    I tried to fix this problem in trunk revision 114637.  If you (or
    someone else who would like to move to the new MinGW runtime) have
    time, please re-test with v4.0 of the MinGW runtime.

    Please also try the various time-related functions, such as
    decode-time, encode-time, format-time-string, and
    current-time-string.  This is because MinGW32 runtime 4.0 also moved
    to using a 64-bit time_t type by default, which according to my
    testing screws up Emacs, especially if it was built on Windows 7 and
    then run on XP.  So for now, I forced the MinGW32 headers to use a
    32-bit time_t type.  This needs to be thoroughly tested, though.


Sorry, how to `try' decode-time, encode-time, format-time-string, and
current-time-string?  I am reading *Help* on each ...

    Well, it turns out the MinGW developers might be listening after all,
    at least to some of the arguments: I'm promised that the next release
    of the runtime will not call opendir/readdir from the startup code.
    We shall see...

Thank you, Eli.
