  That's a simple rule to follow that will avoid some problems, but I thought
mixed-mode coding wasn't actually prohibited and we don't actually go out of
our way to break it - hence the existence of __USE_W32_SOCKETS in the first
place, no?

  To Jarome:

  The problem is that you're not defining it early enough:

  Yes, it does, so __USE_W32_SOCKETS should already have been defined by that
point or it's too late; both winsock2.h *and* sys/types.h have to be #included
while it is already in effect (they both contain #ifdefs that test it).  And
in fact, stdio.h also indirectly include sys/types.h, so the simple answer is
just to define __USE_W32_SOCKETS right at the top alongside the other defines
before you even include the first file.
