Coincidentally, I happen to have been working on that.  I noticed that mingw is defaulting to Windows version 5 on Ubuntu for my little project.    I'll let you know when I've written the app and tested it.

Does this cause the behavior difference you see? If you edit the header
manually, does the mingw build get the msvc behavior and vice versa?
