I opened a bug because compiling whith fluidsynth in cygwin environment and linking dsound library was hanging scummvm.

I was told that it was for compiling whith fluidsynth 1.0.8 in static way. Also, I was informed that cygwin's support was dropped.

The problem is that I was unable to compile fluidsynth so I was using the precompiled win32 built of 1.0.0 (newers were complaining about missing defines). Now I was able to compile 1.0.8 and everything is working now fine. So, I guess that the version should be checked.

The version is defined in fluidsynth/version.h whith a line #define FLUIDSYNTH_VERSION "1.0.8"

BTW, how the hell have you manage to compile the library as a static library? I have compiled but if I disable shared or link it statically it complains about missing implementations of functions...

Also, I'm migrating to MSYS/mingw environment. But msys is having troubles whith heap in Windows and ususally hangs everywhere. I have tried rebasing the dll, updating it... any ideas?

We don't know exactly how that particular precompiled fluidsnyth 1.0.0 library was even built. It could have been built with Microsoft VC++ (requiring -mms-bitfields), or be a conflict been different DirectSound libraries been linked in, but they are just guesses.

I really don't see any reason to look further into this issue, considering you can only confirm it occurs in a precompiled binary, and that fluidsynth 1.0.0 is ancient now.

Use the attached patch, if you want to compile a static build of fluidsynth. Unfortunately the build system of fluidsynth 1.0.8 always assumes a dynamic build under Windows, so I simply hacked around it.

No ideas on your heap issues under msys, I can only suggest asking on their mailing list.
