 Looks better. The `ImageBase` address changes for me on different
 restarts, so, yay! You can test that yourself with e.g. ProcessExplorer
 (opening the lower pane and there should be a column for the addresses).
 The .exe without the patch has 0x400000 as `ImageBase` address.

 This might need more testing, I guess, and someone familiar with
 `binutils` to look over the changes.
 Not finding anyone to do so should at least not block nightly builds with
 the new toolchain.
