No, not according to this:

Quoting cgf from there:

"Defining d_*rec*len as strlen(d_name) would not be correct since that
is supposed to be the length of the record not the name."

BTW, I look forward to trying out rtorrent in Cygwin. I am quite
familiar with rtorrent, as I use it quite often in Linux.
