This looks pretty similar to a post dec 1, 2012 titled "a segmentation fault on minGW"

I installed mingw-w64-gcc on Arch Linux (using the aur package). I configured libev with --host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 (no other configure flags except prefix). 

In my code I try ev_default_loop(0) and then ev_new_loop(0) and both return null/0/false. Libev is static linked. I just tried it on a fresh windows 7 install and there are no env variables set relating to libev. It also fails on my old windows install and in wine. 

I'd love to help try debugging this if you have any ideas where to start.
