As far as MSVC was concerned it was perfectly happy - no other changes were needed.  But I guess there could (potentially) be knock-on effects for other compilers (unlikely perhaps - but non-msvc builds would definitely need to get tested).  Hopefully though, there wouldn't be any issues for user apps because the very first thing gutils.h does is to #include gtypes.h !!

Could you please leave a comment on the bug I linked to earlier in the
thread, detailing what you found?
