 I can reproduce the problem with my own ESR60-based build. I started with
 the 8.0a9 tag, changed app.update.url to point to a test server that I
 control, and replaced the udater's MAR signing certificates with one that
 Kathy and I generated. So — minimal changes.

 Kathy and I think we should merge the workaround that we developed (see
 comment:7) until a proper fix inside mingw-w64 is available. If we agree
 on that approach, I will test the workaround in an ESR60-based build and
 make it available in a git repo.

 Is there someone we can ask about the underlying mingw-w64 bug? I am
 concerned about spending too much time on this ticket at the expense of
 other tasks (which is not to say that working updates are not important).
