Function strstr and MinGW

Hi everyone,

I'm still trying to improve wine cmd but I'm stuck with my patch making 
tests failing.

After some investigations, I've found that my function which replace all 
@space@ by real spaces does not always work.
So I've written a test_case (attached code).
It runs perfectly on Ubuntu (compiled with gcc) but does nothing on 
Windows (compiled with i586-mingw32msvc-gcc).
In fact, on windows, strstr fails and so never goes into the while{ } loop.

Is MinGW the culprit ?
Should I use another function ?
Any idea ?

[Why *standard* function don't even work on Windows ?]

Thanks in advance !
