The data loss looks like a duplicate of
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36982. It was mentioned at
least 5 times in your bug. The dupplicate has been reported for 3.4.0
and is thus very old.

Such old bug can't block the release. Note that if it affected many
users, it would have got many duplicates, many people would have been
shouting in CC. It is not this case, so it is a kind of corner case.

It is pity that we missed 36982 for so long. IMHO, it was because it was
not in most annoying bugs for a long time, had low severity, and not
that scary summary.

Anyway, it has highest severity and priority in most annoying bugs now.
I hope that we will fix it soon.

We can't provide MinGW build to users. It has many other and even more
serious regressions.
