I discovered bug 45076 and produced patches for it but nobody really 
paid attention to it. So I didn't add new patches for 2.2.10.

However on a fresh install (i.e. without any proprietary modules using 
the preconfig hook ordering) it shouldn't core dump.

I actually discovered the bug because I am developping modules that rely 
  on a correct execution order of the pre config hook.

I didn't check 2.2.10 (I am still on 2.2.8) but I don't think that 
built-in modules rely on pre_config hook ordering.

I can produce a 2.2.10 patch if you need it or if any developer is 
willing to fix 45076 issue. It is pretty easy to fix.

Unfortunately I don't think it would solve your issue.

Maybe a linker issue or Cygwin related bug?
