But that would be code in the ntdll.dll or kernel32.dll ? But as I understand
does this code uses the stack of the current process, that is for example bash
or ssp or gdb, isn't it ?
2. objdump shows that ld by default reserves about 2MB for the dll and exe
stack.
Isn't this enough ?

3. Do you know where I can find informations (online docu) about the pe format ?
I have recognized
some differences in the header like a native win32 app and a ld produced app.
For example
the "Subsystem" field differs. Perhaps this is a relocation problem.
Do you know any way to verify this guess ?
