Description

A cypherpunk pointed out that we could possibly use --disable-auto-import on our mingw builds of TBB and tor. This would probably require patching Firefox as well as stack protection in gcc/mingw.

Some guy said it could help to avoid crashes https://sourceforge.net/p/mingw-w64/bugs/537/ and even startup crashes https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/741.
