We have now to think about where to add this macro or if we have to #undef it.
WIN32_CLIENT_ONLY sounds like that if you define it you can only access with
win clients the database. Is that not a big restriction?

Editing original Trolltech or Postgre files is no good solution,
so I've defined it in qwindowdefs_win.h which is a kde-cygwin controlled file.

Maybe this a patch for posrgre. In
WIN32_CLIENT_ONLY is defined only for msvc and borland compilers
#if	defined(_MSC_VER) || defined(__BORLANDC__)
there should also the case || defined(__MINGW32__)
or do they not support mingw?

Best Regards,
