The problems I had are consistent with the following excerpt from the FAQ

"Another problem on NT is that you cannot install a handler for the SIGFPE,
SIGINT, or SIGALRM signals: if you do, your program will crash as soon as
the signal is generated (in DJGPP v2.02 and later, FP exceptions are masked
by default, so you will need to unmask them first, otherwise SIGFPE won't be
generated). This is due to a bug in NT."

So no fix is available
