Hmm, MSVC must pack things different. With GCC everything from
allow shring to destroy with parent will go in the 16 bits
after configure_request_count, so we go from 16 to 17 bits
in a 32 bit space, not 32 to 33 bits in a 32 bit space.

Still, it's trivial to fix by putting the flags into 
GtkWindowPrivate. And the fact that some of the other bit
fields got shifted around in the structure is something I'd
rather avoid anyways.

No, that's not true - above is above all windows, below below
all windows.

I haven't seen any problems switching back and forth between GTK+-2.2
and GTK+-2.4 builds. So, it probably is some other MSVC specific
problem. Can you track it down?
