Hi Bernhard & Cyril,

Many thanks for the detailed analysis!

This looks like it, indeed. I'm hereby cloning this bug into an NSIS
binNMU request:

@Release Team, could we please schedule binNMUs for nsis ?

	nmu nsis_2.46-9 . ALL . -m "Rebuild with gcc-mingw-w64 14 to ensure that NSISdl.dll doesn't depend on a shared libwinpthread-1"

I'll upload win32-loader when nsis is available from the mirrors.

Many thanks, cheers,
