Well yes. I suspect some cyclic dependency of headers. kis_paint_device.h call 
kis_type.h .
It's not clear to me, form which cpp file comes the error. But for the sake of 
clarity, I will take an example, lets take, it tries to includes 
kis_types.h, then kis_types.h includes kis_paint_device.h, which tries to 
include kis_types.h to get the smart pointers, but it doesn't parse anything 
in kis_types.h due to the "#ifndef KISTYPES_H_" protection, so it return to 
kis_paint_device.h without the definition of the smart pointers. That would 
be my explanation of the error.

Now you said that Krita was the last KDE application that doesn't build on 
windows. I do think that kopete also use kdelibs smart pointers (from which 
krita smart pointer are a fork), so how did they solve that cross smart 
pointers definition ?
