Host: Ubuntu 12.04
Platform: CYGWIN_NT-6.2-WOW64 windows8 1.7.25(0.270/5/3) inside VirtualBox 4.2.18-88780
 Program: idutils-4.6
   Issue: Doing a configure (autoconf tools) causes Windows 8 to crash (inside VirtualBox). The last thing that configure was doing:

configure:21871: gcc -std=gnu99 -o conftest.exe -g -O2   conftest.c  >&5
configure:21871: $? = 0
configure:21871: result: yes
configure:21880: checking whether getcwd aborts when 4k < cwd_length < 16k
configure:21999: gcc -std=gnu99 -o conftest.exe -g -O2   conftest.c  >&5
configure:21999: $? = 0
configure:21999: ./conftest.exe

Note: This failure is reproducible in spite of disabling the following Windows 8 services:
- Applciation Experience
- Program Compatibility Assistant Service
- Windows Search
- Disable Windows Defender

Finally I had to hack a workaround by forcing the getcwd conftest to pass in configure script line 21999:
# if ac_fn_c_try_run "$LINENO"; then :
if test 1 = 1 ; then :

Found a similar issue:
