Actually, an idea came to me in the thinking room that this might be due
to the fact that my windows headers may not be considered to be system
headers since they aren't in a preinstalled location.  I know that gcc
can be more lax about redefine symbols in some situations when dealing
with system headers.  Maybe that's it.
