This is an old problem that I never saw any reaction to.

Does anyone understand what the problem may be here?

When I try to compile things with gcc 3.0 against <window.h>, the build
ends in a crash like so:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I../../../swarm-2001-06-27/src/defobj -I../..
-I../.. -I../../libobjc -I../../../swarm-2001-06-27/libobjc -I..
-I../../../swarm-2001-06-27/src/defobj/../misc -I//c/jdk1.3.1/include
-I//c/jdk1.3.1/include/win32 -I../../avcall -DBUILDING_SWARM -g -O2
-Wall -Wno-import -Wno-protocol -Werror -Wno-unknown-pragmas
-Wno-unknown-pragmas -c  -DDLL -DPIC
../../../swarm-2001-06-27/src/defobj/Arguments.m -o .libs/Arguments.lo
In file included from /usr/include/w32api/winnt.h:144,
                 from /usr/include/w32api/windef.h:145,
                 from /usr/include/w32api/windows.h:98,
/usr/include/w32api/basetsd.h:95: parse error before ',' token

This file basetsd.h in current cygwin has the following at lines 94 and

typedef __int64 LONG64, *PLONG64;
typedef __int64 INT64, *PINT64;
Followed by 
typedef unsigned __int64 ULONG64, *PULONG64;
typedef unsigned __int64 DWORD64, *PDWORD64;

If I comment lines 94-95, my programs compile, no trouble, and I stared
at your code a long time and started to think you would know how to fix
it, perhaps easily.  I started to suspect there is some problem with the
typedef __int64 being used "bare", without a qualifier, such as "int" or
such.  What do you think?

Can you include my (pauljohn@ukans.edu) in your cc line, because I'm not
a member of this list (yet)
